Happy Tuesday! Today I thought I’d take a break from the Halloween goodies and make something that says Fall Time. How about Pumpkin Pie Bites? These really are a crowd pleaser, and aren’t they cute?
These little bites are so, so easy to make. All you need is a can of pumpkin pie, a readymade crust from the grocery store, a pumpkin cookie cutter, a can of cream cheese frosting and a mini cupcake pan.
Prepare the pumpkin as you would if you’re making pumpkin pie.
Roll out the ready made dough and cut with your pumpkin cookie cutter.
Next, gently press the dough in the cupcake pan taking care not to bend the pumpkin stem.
Prepare your pumpkin pie mixture and fill. (hint: it will puff up when baking, so don’t fill to the top) I used a small scooper to help me measure the amount of pumpkin filling.
Remember I said this was easy?
So, you can use a readymade cream cheese frosting for a little dollop on the top to make it pretty. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on the frosting. Extra YUM!
You can make these from scratch if you prefer. I have done that also. But, I promised easy and quick.
Pack them in the kids lunches, serve them to the ladies or send them to work with the hubby (he will love you for it), any way, they are a real crowd pleaser!
