Pumpkin is so in right now-right? Besides it being November and all….so I have a thing for minis! This week one of our fabulous mommies from our Ibloom group is hosting a Toddler Thanksgiving-how cute is that? I opted of course to bring something mini and well pumpkin pies just seemed so right.
I scoured Pinterest and found a wonderful post here and decided to roll with it.
They are so easy, good, and well cute. I snagged some premade pie crusts which made it extra easy! The best part is you can simply use the recipe off the can of pumpkin. I used one small can of pumpkin-recipe on back. If you’re making a shopping list before you go you’ll need the pie crust-one box gave me roughly 15 mini pies. One can of evaporated milk-stock up they’re on sale right now! Crushed cloves and crushed ginger in your spice section. Then just your basic salt and sugar and eggs. Oh and cinnamon if you need it.
Follow the directions on the back of the can to make the filling. This made way more than 15 servings so I put the rest in the fridge for later this week. You can use a cup to cut circles out of the crust. Roughly 4 inches wide. I used a mini muffin pan and sprayed liberally as in all over my whole kitchen and self with baking spray. Put your oven at 425 degrees fro 15 minutes. After that lower it to 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.Remove to a cooling rack for 30m-1hour. Add cool whip and eat those babies! I hope those toddlers love them as much as I did. It’s just enough pumpkin.
This weekend I baked for Ibloom, I cooked for a special second time around mommy and brand new baby, and devised my plans for Toddler Thanksgiving. It was exhausting. In between we went to our cousin’s Fairy First Birthday-so cute! Row had a blast running laps around the house in her squeaker boots-totally necessary. Sadly this is the best picture I could get of my busy baby big girl. Toddler pictures are hard ya’ll! Oh and that man-well he’smy most favorite Veteran ever-thanks for your service and sacrifice hubs…and to all those who have served and who’s families truly sacrifice. You’re beyond amazing.
Do you have any mini/pumpkin recipes I need to know about?
