Thanksgiving might look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy those nostalgic foods that remind us of everything we love about the holidays with our friends and family. Pumpkin pie is definitely one of those foods, and if your holiday celebration is a bit smaller this year, this mini version of pumpkin pie is perfect! 

If you follow me on Instagram, my love for all things pumpkin runs deep! I love that you can use pumpkin in so many different ways both sweet and savory to add delicious taste, texture and nutrition to breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. 

This blog post was created in partnership with LIBBY’S®. As always all opinions are my own and I appreciate your support! 

Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin is the only pumpkin puree I stock in my pantry because of its taste and texture and how it’s perfectly suited for baking. For over 100 years, LIBBY’S® has been growing its pumpkins in the heart of Illinois (which means I live in the right state!). The combination of proprietary seed, soil, climate along with the farmers’ expertise and care are what give LIBBY’S® pumpkins a one-of-a-kind flavor.

A family favorite across generations, LIBBY’S® prides itself on canning the highest quality pumpkin since the 1930s and is the number one canned pumpkin in the United States. I think it’s safe to say it’s not Thanksgiving without Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin, whether you’re making a classic pumpkin pie or a twist on a classic.

This individual pumpkin pie recipe is great because it works whether you’re hosting a smaller gathering and want a no fuss pumpkin dessert recipe, or if you want to make something else for dessert as well and want to keep the portion size in check with multiple treats. 

The authentic taste, texture and color of LIBBY’S® pumpkin will help you make these mini pumpkin pies even more delicious this holiday season. This pie filling is made with LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin and is dairy free. LIBBY’S® pumpkin is all natural, gluten-free and has no GMO ingredients, artificial flavors or preservatives.

Easy mini pumpkin pie bites made in a muffin tin, are delicious, easy to make, and the perfect bite-sized pumpkin recipe if you’re not up for making an entire pie!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 12 mini pies

Ingredients
  

For the pumpkin pie filling:

  • 1 cup LIBBY’S 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. allspice
  • Splash of bourbon optional
  • For the crust:
  • 1 packaged store bought pie crust you will need both crusts that come in a package, thawed
  •  

Instructions
 

  • Remove pie crust from the fridge or freezer and let thaw. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Next, make your pumpkin pie filling: in a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, egg, egg yolk, pure maple syrup, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice until smooth and well combined. Set aside.
  • Once the pie crust has thawed, unroll it and use a wide mouth jar or medium circular cookie cutter to cut out circles from both of the pie crusts. You should have just enough for each of the 12 muffin wells. Place the mini pie crusts into each of the wells. 
  • Spoon filling into each of the mini pie crusts. Filling nearly to the top but not so much that any of the filling is coming out.
  • Bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes until the filing is set. Remove from the oven and let cool in the muffin tin for 10 minutes before using a butter knife to gently pop each mini pie out.
  • Top each with a dollop of whipped cream, pecan pieces and extra pumpkin spice and enjoy!

Pumpkin Dessert

Mini Pumpkin Spice Latte Pie Bites

Thanksgiving dessert. I say you either love making it from scratch or you prefer buying something pre-made at the store and calling it a day. Me? I sometimes like a little bit of both which is where these mini pumpkin spice latte pie bites come in. They’re great in terms of portion size considering there will probably be many other desserts decorating your holiday table and the part that you do have to make is simple.

Not only do they look super cute on the table but the addition of the espresso to the pumpkin pie batter gives it a hint of that pumpkin spice latte taste! I showed this dessert last year on The Jam during a segment highlighting healthy pumpkin treats for Thanksgiving  because compared to a full piece of pumpkin pie, these bites come in at less than half the calories.

I’m a big fan of my classic pumpkin swirl cheesecake (recipe available in the Once Upon a Pumpkin Cookbook!) as a Thanksgiving dessert, but not everyone is a cheesecake fan, which is why having something like these mini pumpkin pies helps to satisfy everyones ideal dessert craving.  Get creative with topping or stick to the original fall flavors of pecans and pumpkin seeds like I did here! A little dollop of whipped cream would also make for the perfect topping to this mini pumpkin spice latte pie bites.
