Ingredients

Filling Ingredients

  • 29 oz can 100% pure pumpkin
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1⁄2 tsp cloves

Pastry Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup shortening
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 10-12 tbsp cold water

Praline Topping Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • 6 tbsp butter

Additional Items

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together ingredients for the filling. Mix together eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Blend in pumpkin. Mix in sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk until thoroughly combined, creamy, and smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for the praline topping. Melt butter. Chop nuts. Mix together brown sugar, flour, and pecans. Stir in melted butter.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, create pastry. Mix flour and salt together. Blend in shortening until pea-size pieces form. Using a pastry cutter helps. Add in cold water, a little at a time, and use a fork to toss the flour and water together. When the pastry can be picked up without crumbling, and formed into a ball, it's ready to roll.
  4. Spread some flour on your surface and roll the dough to 1⁄4” thick. Use a 4 1/2” circumference bowl to cut several pastry circles. (if you have a different size mini pie pan, 6” for example, use a 6 1/2” circumference bowl). Before placing the bottom circles in the pie pan, roll it out a bit
    more to thin and stretch the circle.
  5. Fill each mini pie with some filling.
  6. Use the lattice cutter to create pie tops. Use small seasonal cookie cutters to add fun accents to the pies (brush a little water on the underside to help it stick to another piece of pastry). Use the pastry wheel to create strips. And of course, sprinkle in the praline topping for a yummy pie.
  7. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes.
  8. These pies can be made a couple of days ahead and stored covered in the fridge. Set out at room temperature for a few hours before serving. Top with whipping cream. Enjoy!
