Seasonal Snacks

Sometimes things are just better when they are bite sized! I'll take canapés and mingling over a sit down dinner any day. I make these every Fall and this year MK requested them basically as soon as Fall...fell. With the smell of Pumpkin candles flooding the air and a not so coincidental Pumpkin beer in hand, I certainly was in the mood for Mini Pumpkin Pie making!


You can make these exactly how you make a normal pumpkin pie but here is my recipe:

For the crust:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup  oil
  • A splash of water as needed

Mix everything together and then form into greased muffin tins.

For the filling:

  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 can evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix all of your ingredients until smooth, put 1/3 cup filling in each pie crust, bake 20-25 minutes or until the centers are about set.
