Flower Shaped Mini Pumpkin Pie from Walking on Sunshine Recipes short promo


Quick!  Name your favorite pie for the Fall.  
Ever since I was a little girl I have loved Pumpkin Pie. The recipe I use is simple, it's on the back of the Libby's Pure Pumpkin can.  I never buy the can of pumpkin that has the spices mixed in, I like to add my own in the way of Pumpkin Pie Spice. We had a function at our church recently and we all were to bring a fall dessert.  I decided to bake Mini Pumpkin Pies but with a twist.  I cut the dough into flower shapes.  They looked really great with all the other yummy desserts.

Mini Pumpkin Pie

prep time: 25 MINScook time: 20 MINStotal time: 45 mins
A fun new twist is to make these flower shaped mini pumpkin pies for your holiday entertaining this year. This recipe was originally posted on Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 can (15 ounce) Libby's Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 ounce) evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 TBS. to 1 TBS. pumpkin pie spice; depending on your taste.
  • One recipe of pie dough

INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the pumpkin, sugar and pumpkin pie spice; combine well. Add the evaporated milk and combine. Set aside and prepare your dough.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out the pie dough. Using a "flower" shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place in the well of muffin pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Make sure you spray the top of the muffin pan as well. Spread out the flower tips so they lay flat on top of the muffin pan.
  3. Using a small scoop, fill up each muffin.
  4. Brush the dough with an egg wash before baking.
  5. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes; checking after 10 minutes. Since they are small pies, they bake much quicker than a full sized pie. AND oven temperatures vary. You know they are done when you insert a knife in the center and it comes out clean AND the pie dough is a nice color.
  6. Let cool slightly in the muffin tins before removing to a baking rack to cool. Right before serving, add freshly whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon/sugar to the tops of each mini pie.






Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes in the pie crust.  You can use a round or biscuit cutter for the shapes as well.
