Mini Pumpkin Pies (with a sugar cookie crust!)

Me oh my!  It’s Mini Pumpkin Pies!
I’ve mixed and matched this method twice before.  I’ve made Mini Chocolate Pies and Mini Coconut Cream Pies…all with a sugar cookie crust.  This fall, don’t you think we owe it to ourselves to make a pumpkin version?  Of course we do :).
This method makes 2 dozen mini pies using mini muffin tins.

Shopping List
1 (16 oz) tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough (or make your own from scratch)
1 (3 oz) box of instant pumpkin pudding mix (available during the fall)
2 cups milk
whipped cream and cinnamon to garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (I used Pam) one 24-count mini muffin tin.
Slice a piece of cookie dough off of the tube and press it inside of each muffin tin to form a crust.
Bake your cookie crusts about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.  Remove each crust from the pan before filling.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together your pudding mix and milk about five minutes or until thickened.  Add a dollop of pudding mix to each cooled cookie crust.  Refrigerate your mini pies at least 30 minutes to firm them up.
Remove mini pies from fridge and garnish with a little whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Serve and enjoy!

A mini pumpkin pie is a must this fall!

    Can you make the night before serving or do they get mushy?

    Sounds yummy! Do you think these travel well? I am going out of town this weekend and need a dessert to bring.

      Yes! I would just wait and add the whipped topping until you arrived.

    Hey Shay! Making these now and it looks like my crusts are rising up too high. Did you only use a thin layer? I was worried if I made it too thin I wouldn't be able to get it out of the pan

      If for some reason, your crust rises too high, just take a spoon and scoop out a little in the middle. Wait until they cool before you scoop!

    I am having the hardest time finding pumpkin pudding. I live in NC and looked at target and Kroger. Any suggestions?

      Amazon.com has pumpkin pudding if you can't find it in your area.

    Gonna look for the pumpkin pudding and try making these little cuties!

    Hi! Can these be made the night before? If so, leave them in the fridge overnight?

    Would love to see a version of mini pumpkin cheesecake pies! So a bit of a mix of this recipe and your pumpkin spice cheesecake! Or how would you recommend added some cream cheese to this recipe to make it more like cheesecake?
