In honor of Fall, I decided to make a seasonal treat and instantly thought pumpkin! I found this super easy Mini Pumpkin Pecan Pie recipe from The Food Network and it turned out really well.
First I mixed the dry ingredients with freshly chopped pecans thanks to my new Cuisinart.
This turned into a nice, and super sticky, dough.
I divided the dough into 24 little sections and rolled them into balls, using tons of flour. These were pressed into mini cupcake tins and baked.
I used about one big scoop of this giant can of pumpkin to make the filling while the dough was in the oven.
Then I added the filling into the mini tins, topped each one with a full pecan, and continued to bake.
They turned out really well, sort of more like a muffin than a pie, but nevertheless very tasty.
