  • In a large bowl, add filling ingredients in order given. Mix well with an electric mixer.
  • Place each mini pie crust into a greased muffin tin. Fold over where necessary creating a creased effect.

Notes

  • I made this recipe with fresh pumpkin puree, but you can simplify this recipe and buy pumpkin in a can and follow the pumpkin pie filling recipe for a one 9-inch pie.
