Mini Pumpkin Cream Pies!


I’ve tried to keep the pumpkin recipes in check this month. Until today. I’m ready to get down to business and things are about to get exciting.

Let’s kick this weekend off with some pumpkin cream pie, shall we?

There are 2 things I really love about this recipe.


First – the pumpkin cream filling. It’s phenomenal and luscious and you just want to throw it in a piping back and pipe it straight into your mouth. That method of eating goes for this pumpkin cream pie filling as well as ganache, or any other sweet mixture that is pipe-able. That’s totally normal right? Someone please tell me that I’m not alone in this.

Second – these cute fillo shells from Athens. For someone like me, who always wants dessert but doesn’t always have time to whip up a homemade pie dough, these shells are the perfect solution. Not to mention WAY cute!

And away we go….
