Mini Pumpkin Pies

Mini-Pumpkin-Pie-Recipe-Baked-in-Mason-Jar-Lids

… baked in mason jar lids.  That’s right.  I made these mini pumpkin pies using mason jar lids.  They’re like little spring form pans …

 

I even successfully made mini cheesecakes in them in the past.

 

This time out, I decided on mini pumpkin pies.  And it was so easy …

 

I started with the mason jar lids.  Be sure to use the metal side up as your baking surface.

I greased them with a little bit of Crisco too.

 

For the crust, I used premade pie crusts I found in the freezer section at the grocery store.  Just defrost and form into a ball using your hands …

You’ll need about 3 premade crusts to make 25-30 mini pies.

 

Roll out and cut your mini crusts.  I used a glass that was slightly larger than the mason jar lid rim …

And fit into the lids …

which I assembled in a baking pan.  That’s how I cooked them too …

 

I made the filling using the recipe on the can of pumpkin.  Just six ingredients:

 

1 can pumpkin pie filling

1 can evaporated milk (12 oz.)

2 large eggs

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Sugar

Salt

 

Which I mixed together (following the instructions on the pumpkin can) and ladled into the crusts.  You can make between 25-30 mini pumpkin pies with this recipe.

 

I cooked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

 

While they cooked, I cut some decorative pieces from the remaining dough …

using these cute mini cookie cutters I found at Target.

 

After 20 minutes of cooking, I took the mini pies out and added the decorative crust pieces …

And cooked for another 20 minutes.  At 350.

My son is going to be so happy when he gets home from school …

  7. Hi Linda,
    Those little pumpkin pies look so scrumptious, I could just eat them! Oh, I guess that’s what we’re supposed to do! Thanks for the motivation and inspiration. Ever since I found your blog, I make sure not to miss a post.

  8. These are just adorable. I had never thought about baking in the lids before! So cute. Love the touch of the leaf and acorn on top!

  9. Oh my word, how clever and fabulous is this. I would love for you to link up to my Inspire Me party that will be live this afternoon at 2:30 Pt. http://www.astrollthrulife.net Hope to see you there. Hugs, Marty

  10. Hi,
    What kind of lids are these? Should I get the Regular Mouth Jar with Lid? With the band?

    • Jocelyn – I used the standard sized lids and bands that came with Ball’s wide mouth pint-sized jars. Hope this helps!

  11. I love those adorable pumpkin pies, they are just the cutest cleverest I have ever seen…so darn cute, I will have to give those a try, I too love mason jars, they are the sweetest…love your blog and your post…

  12. This is Brilliant! Saw these on the Naps on the Porch website. Love how unique and cute these are! New follower!

  13. I LOVE THIS IDEA!!! However I to am wondering what size lids you used (reg or wide mouth) and do you do anything special to remove them from the lids or do you serve in the lids also can the lids be reused?

  14. Very clever, and love the mini version.

  15. Adorable, brilliant and I bet yummy too!

  16. These are so sweet! I love that idea! Pinning!!

    Oh, how cute and so clever making mini pies. They look wonderful
    After reading through all your instructions; I take it that it takes a total of 40 minutes for the baking time; Correct?
    I know I will be making these up for this ThanksGiving. Thank you

    • Yes, Colleen, it took about 40-minutes. I just kept checking in on them every 10 minutes or so and giving them the knife test. I also wanted to keep an eye on the crust to make sure it didn’t get too brown and was ready with some tin foil if need be …

  21. This is the best idea EVER. So cute.

  22. does the rubber band around the lid melt while they are in the oven?

  23. does the rubber band around the ring melt when the pies are baking in the oven?

  24. AMAZING!!!! I’m so making these for thanksgiving, along with your mini cheesecake recipe. Simply brilliant idea…. thank you!!! <3
