Easy Mini Pumpkin Pies

Crustless Mini Pumpkin Pies are my way of taming a pumpkin craving. This treat is so easy to make, pretty much a foolproof recipe that is hard to mess up. They are ready for the oven in just 10 minutes —easier than pie! 

As the mini pumpkin pies bake, they form a light crust with a dense, but creamy pumpkin filling. Top them with whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate and it’s the perfect fall dessert! If you love pumpkin pie, you are guaranteed to love every bite of these little treasures.

While nothing can take the place of a traditional pumpkin pie, this hand-held version is a yummy holiday sweet that will leave room for your other favorite desserts—no need to resist the Upside Down Apple Pecan Pie, Chocolate Covered Pretzel Pie or Pecan Pie sitting on the table.

What Is A Crustless Pumpkin Pie?

These little bites promise you all the flavor and texture of a pumpkin pie without 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 — also known as Impossible Pumpkin Pie – the crust is inside the pie!

Impossible pies are impossibly easy! They are pies made without a traditional pie crust. You mix up one batter and as it bakes it magically creates different layers — a thin crust like bottom with a rich flavourful custard-like topping

Tips To Make The Perfect Crustless Mini Pumpkin Pies

  • Double the recipe. Don’t know what to do with the extra pumpkin puree and evaporated milk? use the whole 12 ounce can of evaporated milk and the whole 15 ounce can of pumpkin, 3 eggs, and increase the spices and vanilla to 3 teaspoons. No change to the sugar is needed. this will yield 24 mini pumpkin pies.
  • Pumpkin. Make sure you use 100% pure pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling.
  • Use Gluten Free Bisquick or make your own gluten-free baking mix.
  • If you want to use paper baking cups (cupcake papers) be sure to spray them with cooking spray or the mini pies will stick
  • Try topping with homemade cinnamon whipped cream or pumpkin fluff
  • Serve with pie crust cookies

How To Store and Freeze Crustless Pumpkin Pies
