I got a head start this weekend on holiday baking, who says pies are just for Thanksgiving day? I’m a big of fan of individual-sized desserts (as evidenced here and here), after a heavy meal and lots of snacking, I always still want dessert, but just need a little taste to tie me over. So I made the recipe for classic pumpkin pie (I use a top secret family recipe…the one printed on the Libby’s pumpkin puree can!) and used a mini-muffin tin to bake the ingredients off in bite-sized pies. Mini-pies just weren’t cute enough though, I had to up the adorable factor and use my alphabet cookie cutters to spell out a little a seasonal message. I think I’m going to do the same thing for Thanksgiving later this week! What kind of recipes are you baking up for the holidays?
adorable! i love mini everything too. the THANKFUL letters are the perfect touch!
These are so adorable! My grandmother makes mini crustless pies when she has leftover pumpkin pie filling and refrigerates the dough for later. I’ll have to show her this!
How adorable are those letters?! And I love the mini size–perfect for banishing dessert guilt!
Cute idea! Love that it’s different and bite size too.
SO CUTE!!! I love this! And hooray for mini pies!
who can resist a mini pie? your inlaws won’t know what hit ’em this thanksgiving!
