Mini Personal Pumpkin Pies are going to make your guests say “YUM!” and “WOW!” this holiday season.
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. We get to enjoy time with our family, good food, and no gifts are required! This year, I am hosting the meal at our house and I want to make sure the food is on point.
Typically, we only have a few desserts to choose from because everyone is stuffed more than the turkey! I end up only eating one slice so then I miss out on the other desserts available. To remedy that, I have considered creating several mini desserts that enable everyone to try more than one.
Mini Personal Pumpkin Pies – Tools You’ll Need
- Muffin Pan – Any muffin pan will work; however, I LOVE the high-quality USA Pan Bakeware. It’s not overly expensive, holds up to frequent use, easily washes up, and quick-releases my baked goods.
- Non-Stick Baking Spray – I use a coconut oil spray for most of my baked goods but if I need them to be “picture-perfect”, I rely on Baker’s Joy.
- Round Biscuit Cutter – If you don’t have a set, you can also use the lid from a wide-mouth jar to cut the crusts.
- Cooling Racks – LOVE these to help completely cool my treats!
The only question I have for y’all is this: Do you like a little whipped topping or do you completely cover your dessert? I like a little because the dessert is where the best flavor is at!
