  • 2 sheets refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Miniature marshmallows, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, unroll each pie crust; roll to 1/8-in. thickness. Using a floured 4-in. round cutter, cut out 16 circles, rerolling scraps if necessary. Press circles into muffin pans coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, salt and spices until blended. Pour into pie crust cups. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. If desired, top with marshmallows and bake until marshmallows are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes longer. Cool 5 minutes.
  4. Carefully run a knife around sides to loosen tarts. Cool in pans on wire racks before removing.
  5. If desired, roll remaining crust to 1/4-in.-thickness; cut out leaves with 1-1/2 to 2-1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place on baking sheet; bake leaf cutouts until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Arrange cutouts on top of tarts to serve. Serve or refrigerate tartlets within 2 hours.
For 9-in. Pumpkin Pie: Preheat oven to 425°. Unroll 1 refrigerated pie crust into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edge. Prepare filling as directed; pour into pastry shell. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake 35-45 minutes longer, covering edge loosely with foil during the last 10 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning.
