Mini pumpkin pies

Bakerella is one of my favorite blogs. She taught me (the world perhaps?) how to make cakepops. So I was very excited to try her Pumpkin Pie Bites. It was just as easy as promised, and delicious too! I managed to only eat one, and I topped it with cranberry sauce. Weird you say? Nothing with pumpkin and cranberry and sugar could be bad! The rest went in the fridge to reheat and decorate with melted chocolate tomorrow (because I forgot to buy chocolate this week).

Another cute topping idea? Mini leaf cutouts of pie dough sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Since it’s still Halloween season, I’ll probably go with the chocolate jack o’ lantern faces she demonstrated.

I think the cookie cutter was too big, it was hard to jam all the pie crust into each cup.

 

See the lumpy cream cheese? That's what happens when you don't wait for something to get room temperature.

 

Into the oven you go!

 

Not as pretty as Bakerella's, but I'm still impressed.

 

After cooling for about 15 minutes the centers did deflate. I probably could have let them cook a little longer to get a darker crust. Next time I would wait for the cream cheese to come to room temperature as well. This is definitely on the “make again” list!
