What makes these mini pies perfect? For one, the shortcut, which is perfect if you are busy. By using already made a pie crust you are saving time. Roll out the dough, cut circles and add the dough into a muffin tin/muffin pan. Make the pumpkin pie mixture and pour it right into the muffin tins with the pie dough to bake. Cool the baked pumpkin pies and add whip cream and cinnamon! These little pumpkin pies are so delicious!
