Mini Pumpkin Pies – Crustless

Mini Pumpkin Pies – Crustless

You can put pumpkin in anything (just ask Pinterest), but for me the classic pumpkin pie reigns supreme. This has nothing to do with the fact that it’s the “healthiest” of the pies – that’s just a lucky break. Now I can go on about the fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C this dessert...
