Tips for baking the crustless pumpkin pies in a water bath

  • Using a bath helps temper the heat of the oven and adds moisture preventing cracking and a rubbery pie surface.
  • Using a lower heat along with boiling water allows for a more even baking time.
  • Make sure to use boiling water so your mini pumpkin pies cook faster.
  • Use a paper towel in the pan to keep the ramekins from sliding around.
  • Add the boiling water to the pan after you place it in the oven.
  • Remove one of the ramekins from the dish to make it easier to add the boiling water.
