Gingersnap Spiced Mini Pumpkin Pies {Top 10 Thanksgiving Recipes}

Mini pumpkin pies are the best way to enjoy Thanksgiving dessert. They’re perfectly portioned to fit into an already bulging-from-turkey stomach.

But Miss Kita… you told us last week you didn’t like pumpkin pie….

Liar liar pants on fire.

OK, OK. I hear ya! But the truth is, I don’t like pumpkin pie. There’s just something about it – after about two forkfuls, I’m done. Unless there is a mountain, and I mean ridiculous-right-to-your-hips-never-wear-skinny-jeans-again kind of mountain of whipped cream on top, I just can’t finish a slice. Lucky for me, we little bakers have the technology and know how to make mini pumpkin pies, in two forkful sized portions. Now, when we can make hosiery that doesn’t rip on the first wear too, I’ll be a happy camper.

Seriously, sending men to mars and my pantyhose still rip after like 5 minutes. Technology. Huh.

Alright, back to the cooking. Everyone’s all hankered down for Thanksgiving tomorrow. The birds are brining and pies are cooling in window sills, so I decided at the last minute I should get into the Thanksgiving mood myself. Below is a better late than never collection of my top 10 recipes that I think you should experiment with next year, cuz chances are, you have tomorrow covered. If not, there is a Boston Market nearby. Panic, then call them.

But don’t forget the mini pumpkin pies.

That is my size of pumpkin pie too. The gingersnap crust is a fun twist.

I am not a huge pumpkin pie fan either, but these look phenomenal AND I am sure it tastes so very delish with the gingersnaps.
