Pumpkin Pie Bites

Pumpkin Pies

I’ve been in a mini-mood lately when it comes to baking and these bite-sized pies met my big craving.

They are really, really easy. Let me show ya.

Pumpkin Cutter

Of course, it didn’t hurt that I used ready to roll refrigerated pie crust. It comes two to a box and if you roll each round pie crust a little bit thinner with a rolling pin, you can get 24 mini pumpkin-shaped pie crusts out of them. Make sure you use all the dough scraps and re-roll to maximize quantities.

Dough

Then, stuff each one in a mini muffin baking pan. This one holds 24.

Pumpkin Shells

Press the dough down, in and around the edge of each muffin cup. Make sure the stem for the pumpkin stays sticking out. You’ll notice I alternated cups above. I did this mainly to make sure the pie crusts didn’t touch each other. So I ended up baking these in two batches.

Pre-baked

Fill each pie crust with pumpkin filling all the way to the top.

Puffed Pumpkin Pies

When they come out of the oven, they’ll be puffed up like this. Too bad they didn’t stay that way. That would be pretty darn cute.

Pumpkin Pies

But no, after they cool for a few, they’ll fall and be flush with the pie crust.

See… easy mini pumpkin pie bites. These would be really cute at Thanksgiving.

Drizzled Pumpkin Pies

You can even drizzle them with melted chocolate to jazz them up a bit. Just melt some chocolate in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave on medium. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. You can also add a little bit of vegetable oil to make the chocolate more fluid. Then, transfer the chocolate to a re-sealable plastic bag and cut the corner off and drizzle away.

But wait… you say you don’t want to wait until Thanksgiving.

I don’t blame you.

So… pipe some chocolate faces on and make them in October.

Mini Pumpkin Pies

Cute!

And I’ll say it again… easy!

Pumpkin Pie Bites

2 refrigerated ready-to roll pie crusts

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter

Optional
1/2 cup chocolate morsels
vegetable oil
re-sealable plastic bags

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Use cookie cutter to cut 12 pumpkin shapes from each pie crust. You will need to roll the dough thinner than it comes out of the box.
Press dough shapes into a 24 cup mini muffin tray. (Make 12 at a time, alternating cups to make sure pie crusts don’t overlap each other.)
Apply egg whites from one egg to the top edges of each pie.
Mix cream cheese, sugar, canned pumpkin, remaining 2 eggs, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice together until thoroughly combined.
Spoon mixture into each pumpkin-shaped pie crust.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove pies to cool and repeat with second pie crust. Place the muffin tray in the freezer to cool it quickly for re-use.

Makes 24 pies. Keep refrigerated.

To decorate, melt chocolate in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave on medium. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until melted. Add a little vegetable oil to make the chocolate more fluid. Transfer to a re-sealable plastic bag and cut the corner off. Drizzle or draw faces on pies.

Note: The cutter I used was 3 3/4 inches wide, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry. Just use a round cutter around that size or slightly smaller to cut circle shapes out of the dough. Then make stems with the scraps. Press each stem over the edge and down the side of the dough before filling.

Pumpkin pie spice is a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.

Enjoy!

  1. i was going to resist making these, but then i saw a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter in a bag of 4 halloween shaped ones at the dollar section of target. so in my basket they went and tonight i’ll be making these… lol. darn!

  2. Those are too dang cute! I will definitely be making some for an upcoming Halloween party.

  3. Those are just plain adorable! What a great idea, we’ll definitely be making them. :)

  4. k…I haven’t read all 192 comments, so if this was already answered, please direct me to wherever I can find it….

    How to you make the little jack-o-lantern faces so small. Is there a special tool to use for that, or what? I know that if I try to do that with what I have in my kitchen, the little faces will end up little chocolate blobs. Is there something I need to buy? Help me out, ’cause I’m DOING this.

  5. just read page 2 of comments, its the regular size. sorry for the repeat question!!

  6. Love these! Any chance you can say where and what size that cookie cutter is?

    Cant wait to try these!!

  7. These are the cutest things ever! I’m so glad fall is here! :)

  8. These are adorable!! You are seriously amazing… You inspire me every holiday, but my desserts never come out as pretty :)

  9. I’ve seen the cutter at Target. In the holiday section and also the $1 bins.

  10. Mmmm! I made this last night and they turned out awesome. So awesome, in fact, I ate a bunch of them for breakfast. :-)

  11. Could those be any cuter?! Love them!!

  12. First of all, i LOVE the new website design, it’s so pretty and streamlined!

    Also, this is one of my favorite of your posts yet!! Pumpkin pie makes me go weak in the knees, and making them tiny like this makes it oh-so-acceptable to eat a few guiltlessly :) thanks for the fantastic recipe, i can’t wait to try it!

  13. Oops, I meant to comment on this earlier…anyway, your recipes are always so cute and inspirational! I REALLY want to make these soon even though I’m actually not a huge fan of pumpkin pie. But these look absolutely delicious – maybe due to the higher crust-to-filling ratio ;o) I’m tempted to make my own crust and see how that goes.

  14. Could you do this with the regular pumpkin pie recipe on the label of the pumpkin can? I need a cheese free version.

  15. These are amazing and cute! I so want to make them. As if pumpkin pie NEEDED to be any more appetizing.

  16. I LOVE pumpkin pie and these little things look so cute & yummy! {drooling} Unfortunately the smaller food gets the more I seem to eat.

  17. Too impatient to wait until Thanksgiving? It’s called Canadian Thanksgiving! Woo! I really like the jack-o-lantern look though. ;)

  18. Hi , first time here .
    I simply love food crafts n its truly a pleasure to see ur wonderful creations. Although I ‘m not too good at baking yet i’l try out some of the lovely edibles . Kudos to ur simple n lovely explanation style .
    – Smita – http://littlefoodjunction.blogspot.com/

  19. jackie – regular size – it’s listed in the post.

    Astrid – don’t know. try a few and let me know how it works.

    Heather – no, but I bought some a few weeks ago.

    Sally – just too cute!

    Heidi – I ate some room temp because I couldn’t wait until they were chilled. But refrigerate until ready to serve and then set out for display. They’ll be fine.

    carrie – nope

    Melanie – yep

    Marilyn – phase two.

    Mrs. Q – regular – the size is in the post.

    Dawn – no I didn’t – but starting to find that out.

    jennifer – you could leave out the extra spice if its included in the filling

    raquel – no – But I’ve seen it on amazon

    jan – see above

    samantha – sweet potato

  20. Wow! You have just made one pregnant lady very hungry for something very specific!

  21. You have the patience of an angel! They look so delicious. I would probably eat all of them up in one sitting. Just can’t have one :oD

  22. These are adorable, but I don’t like pumpkin pie. Are there other products I could use for filling, or would it have to have the same consistency as canned pumpkin?

  23. holy crapola these look like the BOMB!!

  24. You are incredible!

    You come up with the most adorable stuff! :)

    Thank you for all the inspiration.

  25. I don’t typically enjoy pumpkin pie – but these are cute enough to make just for the fun of it! (plus the pie crust to filling ratio might make it perfect!).

    AND THEN. I saw there is cream cheese in your filling. I can totally get on board with this!!! Thanks!

  26. oops never mind i just saw 350 degrees!

  27. how cute and creative and yummy is this!!!! You make it look so do-able, easy! I think I will try it!!!

  28. Hi! im new to commenting but i am always looking at your blog! its so inspiring! I will def tries these since im a huge pumpkin pie fan but what temp should the oven be on to preheat it? i dont think you put it in the directions

  29. woooooooooooowwww looks so nice

  30. waaah these are adorable. Im not a huge fan of pumpkin pie myself but after seeing these cute little guys I feel the irresistible urge to bake up a batch myself. ^.^

  31. There are great! Where did you get that pumpkin cutter?

  32. These are perfect! I have a recipe for ginger pumpkin waffles that I wanted to make, but they only use half a can of pumpkin. This will be great to use up the rest!

  33. These are so darn cute! Do you remember where you got your pumpkin cutter? I checked at Target, but no luck. Thanks!

  34. Yum! I could eat like a hundred of these.

  35. These are darling – uh, I mean spooky cute! Got one ready for Thanksgiving to turkey it up?

  36. Love these, they are so cute!!

  37. OMG – those are so cute! If my husband sees these, he’s going to want me to make them for him right away. Thanks for the recipe! I love your new site, too – very nice!

  38. I could MAYBE make these. You give me some inspiration. I don’t know but I’ll have to try it.

  39. Wow!! These look delicious, and adorable!! That’s one of the things that I love about your site. You offer tasty recipes that are also artistic!

    I have a blog that gives parents ideas of things to do with their kids. I’m planning a Halloween party/craft idea post, and these little pumpkin pie bites will definitely be featured!

    Visit Evie Adventures .to see how Evie and the other kids enjoy these tasty treats!

  40. ARGH! now you’ve gone and done it and I have to recreate these! They are oh so cute and perfect for the season. Thank you.

  41. Absolutely adorable! Will be making these soon.

  42. This is soooo creative! Wow! I’m very impressed! I’m also a Mini fan :-)

  43. these are so cute! would love to try to make them for my daughter’s b-day party.

    one question though… how would the recipe differ if i used pumpkin pie filling instead of just pumpkin? i already have a can of pumpkin pie filling so i’m wondering what i can take out from your recipe.

  44. These are more than adorable. The pumpkins would make any table special.

  45. OH MY GOODNESS. I’m soooooooo going to get the stuff to do this! I was planning on making some stuffed jalapenos today but I’m thinking I’m going to have to add this to my list! yummers!!

  46. I am trying to quit eating so many sweets and you just have so many cute ideas that I can’t quit! I love anything miniature (I pretty much refuse to make muffins regular size. They have to be mini). I love these and can’t wait to make them. I just might do it today!

  47. Love the new website! This recipe looks easy. You know there is a pumpkin shortage-right………..

  48. WHEE! One questions though– is the cookie cutter you used a regular sugar cookie size or a mini? In my head I imagine that you need a regular size in order to have enough dough to fit up the sides of the mini muffin tin, but not sure. Just want to make sure before I get everything together and then I don’t have the right supplies. Thanks!

  49. Mine are baking now. I’m wondering how hard it will be to remove them from the pan without destroying them, lol We’ll see. Thanks for the cool recipe.

  50. There is an unending spring of adorableness in that head of yours! I’m in LOVE! Totally making these for a party! Wild horses couldn’t stop me;) Thank you for sharing all of your unique ideas!!!

  51. Oh my goodness. Those are just precious!

    I have a niece with a Halloween Birthday, who also loves pumpkin pie. HMMMMMMMMMM :)

  52. Wow, super cute.
    As a take-off from this, I’ll bet you could use other cutters and fillers… for example: you could use an apple shape cookie cutter and fill it with a mixture of apple sauce, eggs, etc. and use red food coloring…………. just thinking out loud.
    Seems the possibilities are endless.

  53. I don’t know if you read all of the comments (you’re SO popular!), but I have made your cake balls for my son’s pre-school class snack a few times and they’re ALWAYS a hit. And of course, I made the burgers for 4th of July. And now I have to do snack at his school next week and I’m SOOOO making these adorable creations. Your creativity seriously inspires me and I absolutely LOVE what you do. Thank you!!!

  54. TINY PIES!!! These are adorable. They also look delicious. A friend of mine just told me about your blog (or now I guess it’s a full-fledged “site”) and how cute your cake pops are! You are one of the reasons that I recently started a blog! You can find me at http://easytherecupcake.blogspot.com. I just made Monsters, Inc. themed cake pops for a Pixar-themed party for my friends :) Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas!

  55. Oh my goodness, I have to make these! I have frozen pumpkin puree that I was looking for a delicious recipe for. This is it. And they are so cute! Thanks. :-)

  56. I’m in love!!!

  57. Those are so stinkin’ adorable!

  58. Good GRAVY! You’re a GENIUS!

  59. These are too cute! And I love the portion control :)

  60. SO funny! I JUST made and posted miniature pies (pumpkin, peach crisp, and sour cream apple)! I guess it’s that season!

    I didn’t think of adding sweet little stems and faces, though! What a cuuuuuuute idea! Next time!

  61. Why can’t these recipes be made printable. We need a print recipe option. Please!

  62. Think this could work with sweet potato filling? These are cute, but I’m not a big pumpkin fan.

  63. I made these tonight – and made apple and cherry tooo. YUM!!!

  64. Cannot wait to make these! Absolutely adorable!! Thanks for another great recipe Bakerella!

  65. Love, Love, Love the pumpkin bites…I wanted to print it but, when I went to preview..it only showed page two…one and three was blank….what am I do wrong??? sad face

  66. How funny that you made these, because yesterday I made mini pecan pies. I also added some mini chocolate chips to the bottom of some of the pies to make them really rich!

  67. you are so fabulous!!!

  68. These are so cute and they look delicious!

  69. awesome! you just resolved my “what to bring to the halloween party?” dilemma!
    Thanks, you rock!

  70. these are adorable! I love your site.
    quick question-
    do you need to spray/butter the mini muffin pans first?

  71. i’m making these for a housewarming party this weekend. but i may only give half of them away so i can eat the other half myself. they look delish.

  72. Those are SUPER cute!! So excited to do them! Going to serve them at our pumpkin carving party! Thanks SO much for posting!

  73. You are a fountain of creativity! I don’t know how you come up with these ideas, but I just LOVE that you do. These are too cute for words, and they look delicious to boot.

  74. I can’t wait to make these!!! If you can believe it, I came up with the same idea, but it hadn’t come to fruition yet for lack of time and wellness. (Who knew how long a single family could draw out taking turns with the swine flu!) So glad to see that it works! Fabulous!

  75. You are truly an inspiration!!! After a long hard day and crazy kids you make me want to bake! Amazing! Thank you so much for taking the time to share!

  76. Yum yum yum yum….. :D

  77. ok so i don’t do pumpkin LOL (it’s just orange, and squishy, and hmmmmm) LOL but I bet these would work as pecan pie bites too… hmmm I might have to try that and let you know how it works…

    GREAT site… we’ve made several of your things here and they are a HIT always !!

  78. I made the cheesecake bites this pass weekend and I think I found my next project. They look delicious and cute!

  79. Even I might be able to make these. And that’s saying something. I burn popcorn.

  80. Can you make these up ahead of time? Would they freeze well? Also did you serve them at room temp, cooled, warmed? I’m thinking of making these for my sister’s baby shower and it would help to make them up ahead of time. Just not sure about what to do with them the day of the shower. Thanks for the help. They look so yummy!!

  81. There so cute, and they look really good, i love the halloween idea too, very creative.

  82. These are adorable. I’m going to make these for a friends bridal shower.. thanks!

  83. I just made them with my 2-year-old and they were super easy. He wanted me to tell you that he really likes them. Here are some photos of us making them if you’re interested.

    http://sallysays.typepad.com/sallysays/2009/09/itty-bitty-pumpkin-pies.html

  84. Have you had a tough time finding canned pumpkin? Our local stores say it hasn’t been on the shelf since last November due to poor crops.

  85. I love it! I am definitely going to try this out on my family for Thanksgiving!

  86. These are for sure the cutest lil pumpkins in the patch!
    Great idea…. so creative!

  87. I stumbled onto your site, and have come back almost everyday, sharing ideas with my daughter who is a dancer. They love sweets, but obviously cant eat large portions and your ideas just fill the bill. Small but delicous and attractive portions!
    Thanks for all you do!

  88. This goes WAAAAY beyond a great idea. Clearly, there is NO limit to your creativity!

    Impressed again,

    Janet

  89. these might possibly be the cutest thing I ever seen!…except for my daughter, of course!

  90. I love pumpkin pie. I am so glad you made this. I will definitely be making these for Halloween!!

  91. It’s like you can read my food-mind! Super yum! PS made the piepops last weekend…Amazing! Thank you for all the awesome ideas!

  92. oh yum i might have to try these out for next months Halloween party.

  93. How do you come up with these things? They’re lovely! People think I’m a genius when I try to do this stuff….. then I have be honest and give credit where it is due :)

  94. I like that they seem to have a little handle. That’s adorable!

  95. Do you think you could freeze them? I would love to make some to pop in lunches for my daughter, but that would only work if they are freezable. Love them!!!

  96. Bakerella, when are you not in a mini-mood? You are the MASTER of all things mini and so good at it too! These are adorable and I appreciate that you don’t disapprove of using pre-made pie crusts and fillings, like some bakers would. Sometimes it’s just fun to do a project without a lot of hassle, and I definitely will be trying this one this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  97. Oooooooooh adorable!!! Especially with the pumpkin faces! What an amazing idea, I love these – is it bad that I kind of want to make them for any occasion? :)

  98. I shared this on facebook! Everyone should see your fabulous mini’s… all of them. Great work!!

  99. I came on here to tell you the I made your oh-so-adorable cake bites for a party yesterday and they were a HUGE hit!! But now that I read your post, I also want to tell you how adorable the mini pumpkin pies are. I can’t wait to try making them.

  100. amazing idea…

    how do u get inspired each time????

  101. Wow those are stinking cute! I can’t wait to try them. Thanks

  102. Great! A wonderful idea for a dessert platter!
    Thank you!

  103. Darling!! I wish we could make treats and take them to school. Alas, all treats must be made in a professional kitchen. These would be perfect for my daughters kindergarten class.

  104. OMG… so much cuteness I can’t even stand it!! Love this idea!

  105. You are amazingly talented!!! These are adorable.

  106. mmmmmmmmmm deli !

  107. So stinking cute. Seriously, who else would think to use a pumpkin cookie cutter to stuff inside a cupcake pan!

    And yay for a full RSS feed :)

  108. OMG stop the cuteness!!!!! I LOVE these!

  109. MMM so yummy !! I love your idea !!

  110. Such a great idea! I like the way it looks with the pumpkin stem.

  111. Where do you come up with these ideas! These are so adorable! Thanks for sharing.

  112. Is it a regular size cookie cutter or mini cookie cutter?

  113. I love mini-pies! These would be perfect for my friend’s “My Little Pumpkin” themed baby shower in November. Way too cute!

  114. Chris – the recipe only calls for a cup so you can get away with a small can.

  115. What size is the can of pumpkin in your recipe? Small or large?

  116. Hey Stacey – it’s listed at the bottom of the post. 3 3/4 inch wide.

  117. oh my. those are sooo cute! now i need pie :) you continue to amaze me with your creativity!! LOVE all your sweet ‘mini’s’!

  118. What size was the pumpkin cookie cutter? I have a few different sizes. Yours looks like the Wilton one.

  119. So creative! I love the use of the pumpkin cutters to make the shape. Great work, as usual!

  120. Those are definitely cute!!

    I ‘referred’ to you in my posting today, and thought I should share today’s tip with you ;-} To read it, go to: http://thehousethatlovebuilt.xanga.com/713206370/use-your-oven/

  121. Thank you so much for this recipe! I have a mini-muffin pan AND I have the pumpkin cutter already! I’m having a Halloween party for my kids and their friends, and these will be perfect (along with some red velvet “vampire” cupcakes). Thanks again!

  122. These are ADORABLE!!! I was just talking with my 5 year old daughter yesterday and we were discussing what “pumpkin” recipe we were going to make to celebrate October. You just answered that question!!!

  123. And now you have arrived at something that is so cute and so easy that I will be making these sometime this week. I, the lazy slob who has not once used the springform cheesecake pans since I’ve been married.

  124. I love this idea! Mmmm….pumpkin…

  125. This just might be my daughters “birthday cake” or instead of. She LOVES pumpkin pie and her b-day is in Oct.! How perfect! Thanks for the great idea!!

  126. Ooooo! I could eat several of those right now. I love pumpkin pie and the piped jack-o-lantern faces just about set me into a fit. How cute is that? It’s about that time for me to pretend it’s fall and these would be great for the show. My fall forecast is hot, humid & rainy so I crank up the air and pretend. Some may say I’m pushing insanity, I just say I love fall. :)

  127. These are maybe the cutest things I have ever seen – thanks! PS: I made your nutterbutter truffle things this weekend. Oh my goodness. The best!!!

  128. These are darling as usual! Love your blog! If I get up the motivation, these would be so cute at my GNO this Wednesday!

  129. I love baking with my daughter and we are going on vacation to the “great grandparents” and this would be so fun to make there. Thanks so much and what a cute site! I know I will be back.
    I ran across your site from a link at The Provident Woman!

  130. Very cute – love your site.

  131. Amanda – just rummaged through the trash and found the label. Pure pumpkin. I’ll correct the post. Thanks!

    Mandy – it was a large can, but I only used 1 cup, so you can get away with a smaller one.

  132. These are way too cute! My daughter loves pumpkin pie and these will be the perfect size for us to make! TFS!

  133. SO darn cute! One question, what size pumpkin did you use? The large can or regular size can?

  134. I’m completely in love with this and your other goodies…it’s gonna be a great holiday season!!! Thanks!!!

  135. These look fantastic! I must try them!!!

  136. I LOVE pumpkin pie…and these are just so darling! Can’t wait to try them!!! Gosh you are creative!

  137. This will be great for my daughter’s fall celebration. They are so perfect!

  138. these rock….I’ve gotta try them!

  139. WOW!! What can I say, you always come up with the cutest darn stuff and this is PERFECT for my kids preschool party in October and November!! Thanks!!

    Angela Barton

  140. How cool is this?!?!? I love it. I just might have to try these at my fall tea! Thanks!

    sweetjeanette.blogspot.com

  141. i LOOOOOVE these!!!!!! you’re so creative!!

  142. Amanda – good catch. Now you have me wondering. I’m pretty sure it was just canned pumpkin and not the filling type. I don’t have the label anymore.

    sarainitaly – I do. Try it.

  143. I love pumpkin and these are so cute! I will be making these for sure. Thanks for sharing!

  144. *Sniff* Aww-inspiring, yes, but not for us Floridians: No pumpkin puree on the shelves, this year, because of a crop shortage. But they look sooo adorable; Is this some kind of strange culinary tourture? :-) LOL Great job on the new site, BTW; by the looks of things, your ‘wannabe’ webdesiging looks a whole bunch better than some people that actually get paid for it! Ha! :-) Happy Fall!

  145. What an excellent idea! These are so cute and make such a great little treat. I can’t wait to try them. :)

  146. These looks so fun! I would probably be inclined to put pecan or walnut eyes on mine and a nice chocolatey toothy grin!

  147. What a great idea! They are so cute. I am craving pumpkin pie!

  148. Am completely in love with these! Can’t wait to make them.

    Do you think traditional pumpkin pie recipe would work? I love the cream cheese idea – kind of like cheesecake, but also LOVE regular pumpkin pie.

    Too cute!

  149. I don’t have to wait that long for Thanksgiving..its in October in the Great White North :D
    yummy little pies O.O

  150. Those are so, so cute!!!

  151. You are truly a genius!!!
    I am sooooo going to make these!!!

  152. I can’t wait to make these. I spent the weekend making mini creations of yours (cheesecake, cutie pies, and brownie bites) so what’s one more for the week. :-)

    Nobody in my house likes pumpkin but me….guess that means I don’t have to share. :-)

  153. You’ve done it again. Adorable!

  154. Those are absolutely smashing! Kids will go crazy. Even people who don’t like pumpkin will love these. I’m with you- I love the bite sized desserts and muffins.

  155. These are ADORABE!!! EVERYTHING you create is sooo completely ADORABLE! I realllly dig the fall and halloween and this has just put me over the edge into spooky yummy delirium!! Thanks so much for the cuuuute idea :)

  156. So gorgeous! And hey, mildly healthy too (by my standards anyway!). Just wanted to comment quickly and say i love the new site design too, and that i really look forward to checking the site every morning when i get into work. Nothing cheers me up more than staring at beautiful photos of tasty cakes. :D

  157. ADORABLE!! You are such an inspiration. Love your site!!

  158. Oh. My. Goodness! I love these so much! Thank you, thank you for sharing these! I absolutely must make them asap… It better get cold here in the desert soon because these will go best with cold weather, sweaters, and golden/red falling leaves outside! Thanks again!

  159. OMG these are way too cute to eat, wish we had the ingredients here in Holland because this is just was I was looking for for school treats :( but never the less I love them

  160. i’ve been so into mini-baked goods lately, too! and omg, these jack-o-lanterns are so cute. great idea of drawing faces onto the pies with chocolate. this is definitely going on my list of halloween desserts.

  161. These are adorable! I love the jack-o-lantern faces.

  162. Ooooh, SO CUTE! I love these! :)

  163. Brilliant idea!

  164. Those look adorable and delicious and dangerously easy to pop into my mouth:)

  165. love those and I think I will be making them!!

  166. I was just thinking about making mini apple dutch pies because I am freezing apples this week. Tomorrow I am doing pumpkin puree so I think these might be in order. Think they will freeze well? What am I saying they will probably not make it to the freezer. Thanks too cute.

  167. Two of my favorites combined… pumpkin pie and halloween :) Thank you for another great recipe!!!

  168. oh my gosh! I’m a pumpkin pie fanatic anyway..
    and these…are TOO stinkin’ cute!!!
    Thanks for sharing…and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!!!

I showed the first picture to my husband and he said “Oooooh!” I scrolled down a few pics and he said “Is that one of those little muffin pans?” Then “Does it tell you which size pan to use?” I said “Of course, but it doesn’t matter because I won’t be making them.” [I’ve had awful experience, so I rarely make things that need to be rolled out.] I got down to the pic with the drizzled chocolate and he said “But they keep getting better!!” I scrolled to the pic with the faces and he made a primal grunting noise and said “That is SO COOL!”. LOL. His reaction was so cute, I guess I have to buy a mini muffin pan and make these soon.

  170. So adorable!!! I already bought tart shells so I could do pumpkin pie tarts for halloween, but did not even think about drawing jack-o-lantern faces with melted chocolate. I LOVE that idea…so gonna do it :)
    I was just telling my husband about how brilliant you are and how jealous I am of what ideas you come up with.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog.

  171. Question:

    canned pumpkin OR canned pumpkin pie filling?

    They are two different things but you mentioned both. The pie filling has stuff added. But canned pumpkin is just pumpkin.
