Mini Pumpkin Pies

pumpkin pie

Got empty graham crusts in your pantry waiting to be filled? I did. My first thought was to make a coconut cream pie. Ah but I was missing one ingredient!! I wasn’t in the mood though to go out to buy one thing. After searching through recipe after recipe, I found this heavenly pumpkin pie for which I already had everything! I am just in love with the small size too. No worries about cutting the perfect slice.

I’ll definitely be taking advantage of this fall season so keep posted to see what other delights will be coming soon!
