Skinny Mini Pumpkin Pies
2 cups canned pumpkin (16 oz)
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
3 packets Sweet’N Low
1/3 c sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/4 c evaporated skimmed milk
12 frozen mini pastry shells
Refrigerated pie crust, for decoration (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
If you’re going to add decorations to the tops of the pies (like the leaves in my photos), go ahead and cut the shapes from your extra pie crust. Place on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 3 minutes, until the pieces of crust start to look golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the pumpkin, salt, pumpkin pie spice, Sweet’N Low, sugar, eggs, and milk until mixed well.
Place the pastry shells on a baking sheet and add 3 Tbsp of the pumpkin mixture to each shell. Bake for 10 minutes until the crusts start to brown, then remove from the oven.
Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Add the baked pie crust decorations to the tops of each pie and cover the individual pies with foil.
Return to the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes.
