Get the perfect pumkin pie portion this Thanksgiving by using cupcake tins. Cupcake tins are pretty amazing. You can do so many different versions of your favorite food in them. How cute would it be at Thanksgiving time to bring out these pumpkin pie cupcakes instead of a regular sized pumpkin pie? Everybody would get their own little individual pumpkin pie.
I thought the pie crust would crumble right away when trying to stuff it into the muffin tin but it didn't. Thank goodness! This worked perfectly. I used a store bought pie crust and took a small bowl to cut the circle out. It fit very well inside the cupcake tin.
Take the filling about ¼ cup, and add it to the muffin tins with the pie crust around them.
You can do this with probably ANY type of pie. Cherry, Blueberry, you name it.
1 store bought pie crust
1 batch of your favorite pie filling. Can even be your favorite low fat version.
Take the pie crust dough out of the container and use a small enough bowl so that the pie crust will fit inside the muffin tin all the way. Fill the cupcake liners with the pie crust. Add in about ¼ cup of your favorite pie filling. Any of those store bought pie fillings is fine in my opinion. Bake the pumpkin pie filling until a tooth pick comes out clean. Mine took about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
