Easy Mini Pumpkin Pie Bites

If you ask my kids what is their favorite thing about the holidays they will say the food! Of course they are mainly talking about dessert.  I make a variety of desserts because my family likes a little bit of everything. I think I got this from my Grandmother because every year she would have a dessert table full of delicious treats for the holidays.

Pies are always popular but mini pies are a big hit. They are great for to go plates and in lunches with your leftovers. They are the perfect size for just a bite if you are stuffed from the main meal and just want a little dessert. I have a recipe for Easy Mini Pumpkin Pie Bites that you will love!

Ingredients

  • 2 Refrigerated Pie Crusts
  • 1 pkg (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 eggs

  5. Using a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add eggs in one at a time.
  6. Add pumpkin puree and beat until combined. Add on pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  7. Spoon mixture into cups, fill till you are almost at the top.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, until the crust edges turn golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  9. Top with whipped cream and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.
