Personal Pumpkin Pies
There are many traditional dishes served at Thanksgiving that we all enjoy; from the traditional Thanksgiving Turkey and stuffing, to the potatoes and gravy, and cranberries. And don’t forget the pumpkin pie for dessert. Yummy! Well, if you are looking to try something new this Thanksgiving, here is a pumpkin pie recipe with a twist.
Personal Pumpkin pies are a perfect alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. They taste the same as the original and can be transported easier as each guest gets their own individual serving. Follow this recipe and leave your guests “ooing” and “aahhing” over your creativeness with this dessert.
Ingredients (serves 12)
- 12- ½ pint wide mouth mason jars (canning jars)
- 3- 9” pie crust packages
- 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cans (15 oz.) pumpkin
- 2 cans (12 fl. oz.) evaporated milk
For the filling:
Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Set aside.
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Line your mason jars all the way to the top with the pie crusts.
Fill each jar with your pie filling. ½ cup of filling per mason jar should do it. Add more if desired but do not fill above rim.
Place the mason jars on a cookie sheet or in a shallow cake pan and bake for 45 min or until filling is done.
Let cool and top with whipped cream, if desired. Serve once cool or place lids on top for guests to take home and enjoy later!
If you want to add a little flare to your guests treat, tie the jars with a little burlap bow and put their names on a name tag to take home with them! It’s such a cute idea; your guests will want to try it at their next holiday gathering.
