Pumpkin Pie Bites

Oh my these pie bites are delicious! No forks needed, just pop them into your mouth! Bite sized treats that are a nice addition to a plate of desserts.
You can use any cream pie filling, they are all delicious! This is also a great way to use up pie scraps when baking pies.

Ingredients:
  • Your favorite pie dough..or use one of the recipes on this blog.
  • Pumpkin pie filling
  • Whipped cream
  1. Mix pie dough, roll out as for pie.
  2. Using a small round cookie cutter, (I used a 1 3/4" cookie cutter) cut as many bites as you will need.
  3. Prick each bite with a fork.
  4. Bake at 450ยบ for 8 minutes or until golden in color.
  5. Cool, then pipe or spoon on filling. If piping, you can use a plastic baggie, fill halfway with filling, cut a small hole in one corner of the baggie and squeeze out the filling onto the baked pie crust round.
  6. Use the same method for whipped cream, pipe or spoon on top of the pumpkin.
  7. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Cooked Pumpkin Pie Filling:
  • 2 cups pumpkin, cooked
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  1. In a saucepan, whisk together all ingredients.
  2. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly.
  3. Cool filling in fridge until ready to use.
  4. Yields: 2 cups
  5. You will need 1 cup filling for 30 pie bites.

  4. WOWZERS! What a great photo to wake up to! These were just as amazing as this picture looks.

    I have a friend who insists you must always have a sweet or treat before you fly, before you drive, before you do anything “because if something happens and
    you die without that little bit of something, you’re going straight to goodie purgatory, where you will think about that last brownie or ice cream cone for the rest of your eternal reward.”

    These guys are MY good purgatory. I promise to eat one everyday. Only if you promise to make one everyday. ;)

  8. Think of a little bite of mince pie . . .banana cream. . .and of course the pumpkin. What a very yummy treat you have set before us! All I can think of is how one bite would be perfect, and 10 bites would be even perfecter! Wonderful for the holiday trays!

  9. These would be even better than pie for Thanksgiving. Just enough for that pumpkin pie taste, but not so much to put you in a food coma. I want to make sure it's perfect for my guests, so I think I'll need to practice...A LOT.
