how to make personal pumpkin pies

Make sure that your pre cooked pumpkin pie has been chilled in the fridge for several hours. This will help keep each mini pie together. If the pie is warm, they will not hold together.

Directions for making mini personal pumpkin pies

  1. Press a 1.5 or 2 inch round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter (that’s been sprayed with non stick cooking spray) into the pie gently turning back and forth against the edge of the pie crust, without cutting into the top portion of the crust.
  2. Work your way from the outside edges of the pie inwards.
  3. Be sure to get each cutout almost touching without over lapping to get the most mini pies out of your pie.
  4. Place each mini pie on a serving tray and top with a dollop of whipped cream or just use the canned whip cream.
  5. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon to the top.

The number of mini pies will vary based on the size of your pie and the size of your cutter.
