Whether you’ve been asked to bring something or want to offer your host/guests something, these two recipes will be your “go-to” options that will wow any crowd without making you sweat.

Mini Pumpkin Pies
Recipe Type: Dessert
1 package refrigerated pie crusts
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Mix pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and pumpkin pie spice in large bowl until smooth. Pour into pastry lined muffin cups to the top. Top with a pastry leaf if desired.
Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake 20 – 25 minutes longer or until knife inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool 30 minutes in pan and remove to wire rack to cool for another hour for pumpkin filling to set completely.
I did have a little more filling than would fill the 12 muffin cups, so I baked the remaining filling in a ramekin and topped with a few pastry leaves.
