Level: Easy
Prep Time: 8 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Cooling Time: 2 hrs
Yields: 4 mini-pumpkin pies


This Thanksgiving bring the kids into the kitchen. Together you can make these easy mini pumpkin pies which are perfectly scaled down to kid size!


  • 4 (1-cup vol each) 4-inch diameter mini-pie shells
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk


PREHEAT oven to 425° F.

MIX sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

POUR into shells.

BAKE for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F.; bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. (Do not freeze as this may cause filling to separate from the crust.)

NOTE: May use refrigerated or homemade single pie crust to make 4 mini-pie shells. Lay rim of mini-pie pan on rolled out dough. Cut circle 1/2-inch larger than mini-pie to allow for dough to form fluted edge.

FOR LOWER FAT/CALORIE PIES, substitute NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Lowfat Evaporated or Fat Free Evaporated Milk.

NOTE: If using metal or foil pans, bake on preheated heavy-duty baking sheet.

Cute and Simiple

by P. Pam , Exeter, NE on Feb. 2010

These mini pumpkin pie desserts are so cute to give to my family. I baked them and gave them to my 2 boys in Lincoln, NE. They were delighted to receive them! All they had to do was buy some Whip Cream....Mom's always know how to make her boys smile and I'm glad I did. So delicious! Try this recipe out!

Made 'em even mini-er

by V. Valarie , LOS LUNAS, NM on Dec. 2008

Just baked up a batch of mini-pumpkin pies. Used roll-out pie dough, a biscuit cutter with ruffled edges, and a mini-muffin pan. These are perfect 2-3 bite pies, and the pie-crust is nice and flakey-crispy all the way. Wish I could upload photo's - I know everyone would love them!

Always a treat

My father and godson love pumpkin pie. One time I made the 10" pumpkin pies and the minis. There was enough for everyone. Not a crumb went to waste.

Mini Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin is my daughter in-law's favorite pie. I made this at thanksgiving and she was thrilled. Her own little pie and she didn't have to share it with anyone. Excellent recipe and a real keeper for your Recipe box.

Use Muffin Tins!

by K. Kim , Raleigh, NC on Nov. 2006

I couldn't find any small pans and needed to make these with my sons kindergarten class. I used muffin tins sprayed with nonstick spray. Unroll refrigerated pie dough and cut circles with a round cutter. Be sure they are large enough to go up the sides of the tin. Fill 2/3 full with pumpkin filling. Bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes. They popped right out and with a squirt of whipped cream were so cute and the perfect size for the kids!

Mini Pumpkin Pies

I made two different batches of these pies with this recipe (1 with cinnamon and 1 without) and there are no leftovers to wrap and store! The directions are easy to follow. The pies have a wonderful "made from scratch" taste.


by D. Debbie , Seminole, FL on Oct. 2006

This recipe was simple and easy to make. Delicious! I'll definitely make this again.


by L. Linnett , TAVARES, FL on Feb. 2006

Could not find the mini shells; used flat pie crust and made my own in my mini pans. Substituted sweet potato in place of pumpkin pie mix. Everyone glad to have their "own pie". Easy clean up!! You gotta love it!!

Super pies

by M. Maria , CORPUS CHRISTI, TX on Jan. 2006

The perfect single serving dessert. These pies were a hit this past Thanksgiving Day. I'm sure they will be on my table every year from now on. Thanks for a Super recipe .
