These tasty pumpkin pie bites are loaded with the creamy pumpkin flavor you love in bite size form. This perfect fall recipe has a buttery, flakey crust packed with a creamy pumpkin filling.
Fall just arrived this week and we’ve already posted two pumpkin recipes on Foodie and Wine. We know. We may have a problem. A pumpkin problem. I guess if you’re going to have a vice, pumpkin puree laden treats is a good one to have. Of course once we step on the scale after the holidays we may change our mind. We reserve the right to.
This Pumpkin Bites recipe is simple and quick, once you have your pie dough. If you’re making dough from scratch you’ll need to plan ahead using our recipe as it takes 4 hours to chill. We tend to make pie dough from scratch (you’ll find the recipe included below), however a pre-made pie dough is just as lovely and half the work. We don’t judge. Grab that roll of buttery flakey goodness and stick it in your shopping cart. In fact, grab two and thank us for it later.
One thing we love about these pumpkin pie bites is their overall texture and flavor at varying temperatures. These pie bites are just as good cold from the fridge as they are straight from the oven. Of course they’re so good they may not even make it into the fridge. Again- We won’t judge you for it. We get it.
PUMPKIN PIE BITES
Top these bad boys with cool whip, whip cream or marshmallow cream. We’ve been known to top off with chopped nuts. It’s all good.
Once cooled, store these in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
If you’re using store bought dough, you will use both crusts. If you’re using a homemade pie dough recipe, double it.
The only special kitchen item you need to make these pumpkin pie bites is a mini muffin tin. That’s it.
