So Fall officially arrived over the weekend, and you know what that means………..we all start craving pumpkin recipes!!

A while back I had bookmarked a recipe from the Betty Crocker website for Incredibly Easy Mini Pumpkin Pies and I thought the first day of fall was the perfect time to give them a try. 

I was so intrigued by the fact that these little bites promise you all the flavor and texture of a pumpkin pie with out the traditional crust.

Basically it’s a pumpkin pie filling with Bisquick mixed in, which gives these little pies enough structure to hold it together — that’s why I decided to name them Inside Out Mini Pumpkin Pies – the crust is inside the pie!

These tasty little pumpkin pie treats are SO simple to make!  Just whisk all of the ingredients together, divide batter into muffin tins and bake. When these little pies come out of the oven, they will fall as they cool because of their slightly dense pumpkin pie center.

They are best served room temperature, or chilled. I prefer my pumpkin pie chilled, so once they became room temperature, I put them in a covered container and popped them into the fridge.  When ready to serve, top with some whipped cream or a drizzle of melted chocolate……or both!

Now don’t get me wrong, these will never take the place of real pumpkin pie……..I’m a HUGE fan of pie crust!!  But you can’t beat the simplicity and how portable these are.  You could also make them in a mini muffin pan for bite sized portions!! How perfect would that be for a party!!
