Mini Pumpkin Pies Ingredients

Mini Pumpkin Pie ingredients image
  • Pie crust – unbaked pie crusts
  • Pumpkin puree – pure pumpkin puree
  • Evaporated milk
  • Sugar – granulated sugar
  • Salt
  • Eggs – large eggs
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Whipped cream – spray whipped cream for topping, optional

The pie crusts should be set out at room temperature about 30 minutes before working with them so that they do not crack when unrolling. Each crust will make about 18 mini pies. You can also substitute a homemade pie crust recipe for these easy mini pumpkin pies.

There is enough filling made from one can of pumpkin and one can of evaporated milk to make about 54 mini pies. Watch out when you are at the grocery store that you buy 100% pure pumpkin purée and not canned pumpkin pie filling.

You can mix up your own spice mix instead of using pumpkin pie spice. In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of ground cinnamon, 4 teaspoons of ground ginger, 3 teaspoons of ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of ground cloves, and 1 teaspoon of ground allspice.

How to Make Mini Pumpkin Pies

FIRST STEP: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin and set aside.

SECOND STEP: Unroll one pie crust onto a sheet of parchment paper or a lightly floured work surface. Use a 2½-inch round biscuit cutter to cut as many rounds from the crust as possible. Gather the leftover scraps and re-roll, then continue cutting rounds until you have used as much of the crust as possible.

THIRD STEP: Press one round into each muffin tin cavity, pressing it fully down into the bottom and up the sides of the tin. If you are reusing the same muffin tin for multiple batches, simply set aside the extra crust rounds and lightly cover them with plastic wrap so they don’t dry out.

FOURTH STEP: Whisk together pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, salt, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl until fully combined.

step 4 Mini Pumpkin Pies

FIFTH STEP: Spoon about one tablespoon of pumpkin pie filling into each crust-lined muffin tin.

step 5 Mini Pumpkin Pies

SIXTH STEP: Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until pumpkin pie filling is set in the center. Cool and remove from the muffin tin.

step 6 Mini Pumpkin Pies

SEVENTH STEP: Repeat steps with the remaining pie crusts and filling until you have used up your ingredients.

EIGHTH STEP: Top completely cooled mini pies with a squirt of whipped cream just before serving.

Can I use homemade pumpkin puree? 

You can certainly use fresh puree in place of store-bought in this mini pumpkin pie recipe.

Can I freeze mini pumpkin pies? 

Just like a regular-sized pumpkin pie, these little pies freeze well. Wrap them up and keep them in the freezer for up to one month. 

Can I make my own pie crust? 

Either store-bought or homemade pie crusts would be perfect for these mini pumpkin pies. Pies will come out of the oven slightly puffed and will flatten out as they cool.

How to Store Mini Pumpkin Pies 

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftover mini pies in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  

IN THE FREEZER: Store your mini pumpkin pies in the freezer for up to 1 month. Defrost in the refrigerator before serving.
