Have you ever tried Pumpkin bites? Do you even like pumpkin? :) I personally LOVE pumpkin! Every fall my mom and I make our own pumpkin puree, super easy and yet suuuper rewarding. Pumpkin pie is yummy, but when I make pumpkin pie it is usually for Thanksgiving or Christmas... which means we usually have at LEAST 5 other desserts available for consumption at the same time! :) I thought that doing the pumpkin in a smaller bite size would make it easier for people to have the pumpkin pie experience while still leaving room for the other dessert.
I always use this recipe for my pumpkin pie... it is definitely not the "lightest" pumpkin pie recipe out there, but I think it is one of the yummiest! Instead of crust I like to use ginger snap or shortbread cookies in the bottom of the cupcake liner in a muffin pan. This last time I made them we cut hearts out of the scalloped shaped ginger snap cookies, and placed one on top of each "bite."
This made them taste sweeter I'm sure... ;) We had my brother and his wife over for dinner last Sunday, and these were the perfect follow up to some quality time spent playing the Kinect on the Xbox. :)
