Pumpkin pie is a conventional holiday dessert that is often served during Fall , for thanksgiving in the Unites States and Canada.This custard-y pumpkin goodness, with the warmth of aromatic spices like cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg is perfect for any occasion !!!
So this is the first time I ever tried my hands on making a pumpkin pie and I had to share it with you lovely readers! I’ve been in the United States for about 2 years now, last year I missed Halloween & Thanksgiving as we had to visit India, since we wanted to celebrate our son Ethan’s first birthday with family and friends. So this year, I definitely wanted to make this holiday dessert! To make it a little lighter, I decided to make a crust-less pie, and instead of baking a traditional 9 inch pie, I baked them in silicone cupcake liners ! Oh yes! it’s been a while since I’ve made something with my muffin pan ! Aren’t these cute? These were really delicious, I loved the delicate texture too !
Recipe slightly adapted from Crustless Libby’s famous pumpkin pie
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix
2 large eggs
1 can (15 oz.) Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin
1 can (12 fl. oz.) Evaporated milk
Whipped cream, (optional)
1.Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).Line a muffin pans with silicone liner. Spray each liner with cooking spray.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs to incorporate the yolks with the whites, add the pumpkin puree , mix well. Next add the sugar, spices and salt. Mix well. Finally, add the evaporated milk and mix well to form a smooth lump free batter.
3.Pour the pumpkin pie filling into each silicone cupcake liner almost to the top. ( You will have excess pie filling, I baked the remaining in a 4 and 1/2 inch spring form pan, base covered with aluminum foil, to avoid any spillage).
4.Bake at 350 °F (180 °C) for 30 minutes until set, the one in the pan took me about 40 minutes
5.Cool on a wire rack for about 1 hour, Serve immediately or refrigerate . Enjoy with some whipped cream topping.
