Little individual pies filled with soft pumpkin pie cheesecake filling. A popular holiday treat that has all the great flavors of a pumpkin pie and the creaminess of a cheesecake.
MINI PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE PIES
As soon as it hits September, my husband starts begging me to make my Pumpkin Cheese cake Pie. It’s all he wants to eat all season long and it’s a must for me to make for Thanksgiving dinner.
These little pumpin cheesecake pies are not just the individual version of the pie, the best part is that they also have MORE crust in every bite. I don’t know about you, but I am super excited to have more crust with every bite of the pie. Little bites of pumpkin heaven indeed.
There are a couple of tips that I also want to mention first, before I let you enjoy the pie. This recipe makes 10 little pies but you can easily double it to serve a bigger crowd. This cheesecake pie can be made into a whole pie and you can follow my recipe HERE.
One more note, I recommend that if you plan on making little decorations out of leftover pie crust, it would be best to pre-bake them first. Just cut out the decorations, lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake them in a pre-heated oven until just golden. Place the decorative crust pieces on the pie batter before baking it.
