You can probably tell by the title of my blog that pies are one of my favorite things to eat and make. Though the writer in me also really liked the alliteration 🙂 I make pies quite frequently, but they can be kind of a hassle to make with rolling out the crust, and when I roll out crust it never looks as pretty as it does on TV. Then slicing the pie, it never comes out all perfect and completely intact. So I made Mini Pumpkin Pies with Marshmallow. These . . . yeah, they came out pretty perfect. And oh yeah, you don’t have to roll out the crust!
Instead it’s pressed into a muffin tin, filled up with spicy pumpkin goodness, and baked. When it’s cooled, I topped it with a heaping helping of marshmallow. It’s basically marshmallow fluff like from the store, but a million times better. I could eat the whole bowl it’s so yummy. You may or may not choose to brulee the marshmallow, but it looks and tastes awesome after a minute or so under the broiler. One of those super cool kitchen torches would do the trick too.
So if by now I don’t have you craving one of these pies, I clearly haven’t done my job. But I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on the recipe. This is my second post for Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs. It’s a partnership I’m still ecstatic about, so please head over to their site to read my blog post and recipe. Then prepare your muffin tin to make some pies.

I. love. pumpkin pie!!!
Mine never turn out pretty either, but these minis are super cute!!
Pumpkin pie is soooo yummy! Thanks, Kayle! I was really pleasantly surprised with how well these turned out.
These are so tasty. The crust is wonderful and compliments the filling but the marshmallow is my favorite! Love Davidson’s eggs for a no worry marshmallow frosting.
Thanks! I love the marshmallow too! Yes, Davidson eggs are the best for no worries 🙂

I love pumpkin pie too, Linda. This is a fun spin on the traditional pumpkin pie.

I’m not always the biggest fan of pumpkin pie. But a cute little one like this with marshmallow fluff? Oh my — I just might make an exception. 😉
Thanks for visiting, Carolyn! My mom and I both thought these didn’t taste like traditional pumpkin pie, so I think you might enjoy them. Just make sure to pile on tons of marshmallow 🙂

Homemade marshmallow calls to me! I love making miniature pies, too – I always make one kind or another for parties; nobody wants to have to do battle with a fork and a big plate while holding their drink at the same time! I’m a sucker for graham cracker crust, too; so buttery and delicious. These look great!
Thanks, Sydney! There is nothing like homemade marshmallow. This was actually the first time I’d made mini pies, but it certainly won’t be the last. It wasn’t graham cracker crust. I just took regular pie crust and pressed it in. But graham cracker crust is a great idea; I might have to try that!
