Ingredients

  • 3 pie crusts cut into rounds to fit your mini-muffin pan (mine is 1 1/2 inch)
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch pepper and salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut the pie crust into circles about 1.5-2 inches in diameter.
  • Press gently into a mini-muffin pan and prick gently with a fork.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, mix the pumpkin, brown sugar, cream, and eggs together. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and spices together.
  • Add the spices to the pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  • When the crusts have been baked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and fill just to the top with filling (1.5 inch circles are about 1 tablespoon each).
  • Press a pecan into the top of each.
  • Bake for an additional 15 -20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool a couple of minutes before removing from pan.

Notes

I don't have 3 mini-muffin pans so I do these in batches:
I cut the dough into circles and put the circles not being used into the fridge, immediately. 
After each batch is done and the pies are removed, I let the pan cool for about 15 minutes before starting the next batch.
Doing it this way is simple, but does take about 3 hours in total time.
