Thanksgiving Dessert Idea: Potted Pumpkin Pies

potted pumpkin pies by inchmark

Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple. To ensure everyone gets their share of dessert, try this adorable idea from Brooke Reynolds of Inchmark (she is a former art director for Martha Stewart Kids magazine).

Bake pumpkin pies in a small glass canning jars, allow to cool and top with whipped cream. Not only does it take less time than baking a pie, the miniature potted pies could also be labeled with guest names and used as placecards on your Thanksgiving table. And if your guests are pressed for time, they’ll love taking their pie “to go” so they can enjoy it at home.

    I love this idea! The personal pumpkin pies are not only adorable, but a little more calorie/serving size friendly. Fantastic. Can’t wait to try this out this year!
