Topped with a boozy bourbon maple whipped cream, these no-crust mini pumpkin pies will please everyone.
Keep everyone at your Thanksgiving table happy with their own serving of pumpkin pie.
Delicious and gluten free because this traditional pumpkin pie is missing the crust.
This recipe couldn’t be easier. The filling took five minutes to mix together.
No rolling out the crust.
No burned edges.
No cracked pie.
Have you ever baked a pumpkin pie and had the creamy custard crack right down the middle?
To avoid that, these no crust mini pumpkin pies are baked in a hot water bath.
Everyone gets their own serving.
Deliciously creamy like custard should be!
And suitable for all your gluten-free guests this Thanksgiving.
These mini crustless servings take less time in the oven yet still taste like traditional pumpkin pie.
I amped up the flavor by adding a splash of Kentucky bourbon and sweet maple syrup to my whipped cream for an adult dessert.
How to bake 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.
