Good Monday to you!

I am so excited for Thanksgiving this week, I can hardly stand it!!  We’ve got 2 parties at the boys school this week.  One this morning and one Tuesday.  As if I’m not going to eat enough Thursday!

Here is another version of the mini pies I made a couple months ago.  I added a pumpkin pie filling along with some marshmallows and chocolate chips.  The marshmallows leave a gooey sweetness I love in these pies.  If you are a pumpkin pie fan, these little pies will not disappoint! Take a peek!

Mini Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pies

1 Cup canned pumpkin, I used Libby’s

1/4 Cup granulated sugar

1/4 Cup evaporative milk

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

1 egg, beaten

2 rolls Pillsbury pie crust, thawed (1 package has 2 rolls)

1/4 Cup chocolate chips

1/4 Cup mini marshmallows

1 egg, 1 teaspoon water; beaten for egg wash

1/4 Cup powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a bowl, mix together the pumpkin, sugar, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and egg until well combined.

2.  Roll out each pie crust.  Use a 3 inch round cookie cutter or glass and cut out circles from pie crust.  Be sure to re-roll extra dough.  Place round pie crusts onto a cookie sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.  Place 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie filling into center of each pie crust round.  Top with 2 marshmallows and 4 chocolate chips each.  Brush edges with egg wash then fold crust over filling and press edges with tines of a fork to seal.  Poke top of each crust with fork for steam to escape.  Clean any oozing pumpkin filling with a paper towl.  Brush tops with egg wash and bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.

2.  Let cool for 5 minutes, dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.

    This is such a great idea/ I love mini foods. Just enough of a bite so you don’t feel like your giving something up and just small enough to not be overdoing it!

    Okay, you totally read my mind! I was already planning on making “pumpkin pocket pies” (thanks to this gadget [http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/b318/] I got at Williams-Sonoma) and now you’ve given me a great filling to put in it, instead of regular ol’ pumpkin pie filling. Thank you!

    I made these a few days ago with puff pastry instead of pie crust!
    Oh my goodness were these ever good!!!
    My fiancé and I enjoyed them very much, and later that day I took some to my parent’s and even my dad, who usually NEVER eats any kind of dishes with pumpkin, absolutely loved them!
    And I got even asked for the recipe a few times :)

    Best wishes from Germany!!!
    Aleks :)
