Mini Pumpkin Pie Recipe

No other special equipment is needed besides a regular muffin tin.

  • 15-oz. package ready-to-bake pie crusts
  • 15-oz. can pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 12-oz. evaporated milk
  • ¾ c. brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
  • Toppings: Whipped cream or cool whip and ground cinnamon, if desired.

On a floured surface, roll out the pie dough.

Using a biscuit cutter or a round 3-inch cookie cutter, cup out 24 small circles to make mini crusts.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and push your dough circles into each muffin cup.

In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, brown sugar, eggs and spices.

Fill your mini pie crusts up with your pumpkin filling and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Bake in a 350 F oven temperature for a baking time of 10-15 minutes. Let the whole thing cool off on a wire rack.

Serve your adorable mini pumpkin pies with homemade whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon!

How long can pumpkin pie sit out?

Like traditional Pumpkin pie, these individual pumpkin pies are best if they’re consumed within 4 hours after being baked.

If you plan to serve in a room temperature environment or outside your home for more than four hours before serving then refrigerate the pie until just before eating time. The colder temperature will help preserve its flavor and texture better over this extended period of time!

How long does pumpkin pie last?


Individual mini pumpkin pies can last up to two weeks in the fridge, but will taste better if eaten at least three days after it’s been made. Wrap each of your little pies with plastic wrap.

How to tell if a pumpkin pie is done?

A sure sign that your pumpkin pie is done cooking and ready to eat would be when the crust turns a golden brown and a toothpick or knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

What to do with leftover pumpkin pie filling?

Leftover pumpkin mixture can be stored in an airtight container and used for additional pumpkin recipes including pumpkin muffins, waffles with syrup, pancakes with maple butter.

What is a substitute pumpkin pie spice for individual spices?

Who says you need to buy a Pumpkin pie spice mix from the store? With just five ingredients, one can easily make their own.

Start by adding cinnamon and nutmeg in order to give it that sweet pumpkin taste or flavor. Then add ginger which will bring out all of those wonderful flavors with its spicy kick; cloves for some zing; and finally cardamom as an extra-special touch!
