Pumpkin Pie Bites Recipe

Pumpkin is high in fiber, low in calories and delicious in pies. The gourd packs an abundance of disease-fighting nutrients, too, including potassium, vitamin A and carotenoids. And our pumpkin pie recipe has less sugar and fat than the traditional one, but trust us, it’s perfection all the same.

For the crust:
4 refrigerated ready-to-roll pie crusts

1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Position oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Roll out two sheets of dough and use the cookie cutter to cut 24 circles (you may need to re-roll scraps). Gently press each circle into the molds of 24-cup mini muffin tray, leaving a 1/4-inch crust on top. Brush egg whites on the edges of each pie.
  3. To prepare filling, whisk together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add pumpkin, and beat until smooth.
  4. Spoon pumpkin mixture into each crust. Bake for 16-18 minutes.
  5. Remove pies and cool completely on wire rack. Repeat with the rest of the pie dough and filling.
