Easy Muffin Tin Mini Pumpkin Pies make the easiest fall treat for your family and guests!
Pumpkin pie made from scratch is a great recipe for bakers looking for something stress-free and delicious! Pumpkin pie is made from pureed pumpkin that is spiced and mixed with dairy into a custard. It can be served in so many different variations including:
- Large, traditional pies
- Mini muffin tin pumpkin pies
- Whipped into a souffle
- As part of a trifle using gingerbread and butterscotch pudding
The ideas for how to use fresh pumpkin are endless. There have been entire cookbooks dedicated to cooking and baking with pumpkin. However; my favorite will always be a deeply spiced traditional pumpkin pie with a flaky crust and whipped cream on top. Call me a traditionalist. I am.
A little pumpkin history:
I wonder if you’re thinking like I thought – the Pilgrims ate pumpkin pie! That’s why it’s a Thanksgiving tradition. Wrong. They didn’t have flour to make any type of crust – so they weren’t able to make pie. They did, however; eat pumpkin along with other different squash. From what I understand the pumpkin pie was actually first made in England. They know a great deal more on the history of pumpkin pie over at History.com. Check it out!
Can you use pie filling?
Technically the answer is yes. You can use prepared pumpkin pie filling. Personally, the prepared pie filling doesn’t have enough depth of flavor, so I don’t.
How long is pumpkin pie good for?
Usually pumpkin pie lasts about 4-5 days in the refridgerator.
Can you keep pumpkin pie on the counter?
Don’t leave a full size homemade pumpkin pie on the counter longer than a couple of hours after cooling. For the mini versions – put the pies into the fridge at one hour after cooling. If you have purchased the pie at the store it’s full of preservatives and it’ll last just keeping it at room termperature.
