How to Make One-Pan Mini Thanksgiving Pies Three Ways

  • First, preheat the oven to 375°F. Then spray 24-cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Next, open and unfold one thawed pie crust at a time onto a lightly floured surface. Then, with a 2.5 inch round biscuit or cookie cutter, cut 24 rounds. Repeat with remaining pie crust. From the extra pie crust, cut mini leaf or fall-themed shapes for garnishing the Pumpkin Pie Bites.
  • Then, in the prepared mini muffin cups, press 1 round of pie crust into the bottom and up the sides of each cup.

Pecan Pie Bites: In a medium bowl, first whisk together butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and egg. Then stir in chopped pecans. Spoon into 8 of the pie-crust lined cups.

Pumpkin Pie Bites: In a medium bowl, first combine the pumpkin puree, cream cheese, light brown sugar, egg, and pumpkin pie spice. Then, using a hand mixer, beat until smooth. Spoon into 8 of the pie-crust lined cups.

Apple Pie Bites: In a medium bowl, first combine apples, butter, vanilla, light brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Toss to combine well. Then spoon into 8 of the pie-crust lined cups.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the pies begin to set in the center. The pecan pie filling with puff up, but settle back down once the pies are removed from the oven.

  • While the pies cool, place the fall-theme shaped pie crust pieces on a baking sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.
  • Finally, garnish some of the pie bites with whipped cream and a decorative pie crust shape, if desired.
  • Serve and Enjoy!

How to Prep Your Pies in Advance

Making your pies in advance? If you make them the night before, let them cool completely and then leave them in the mini muffin pan or transfer them to a rimmed baking sheet and cover them to refrigerate overnight.

Before you’re ready to serve them, you can place them in a 200 degree oven to warm through for at least 15-20 minutes or until you’re ready to enjoy them warm. They are also great served at room temperature.

To store the pie bites, let them cool completely and then store covered in plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Let come to room temperature or warm them (see instructions above) before garnishing and serving.

    1. Hi, Jen! I haven’t tried these in a regular muffin tin, but my best guess is you will only need to add 5-10 minutes of baking time. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

  1. I would like to make 12 or more pecan pie minis..
    can you give me the measurement of ingredients for them. thanks in advance..

  2. These look amazing. I’m plan to make the pecan pie version since other people plan to bring pumpkin and apple pies. Question: Have you ever tried a chocolate pecan version or how would you recommend going about that? Add mini chocolate chips in before topping with the pecan mixture – – or drizzling chocolate over the top of the pecan pies? I would opt to make 1/2 regular and 1/2 chocolate pecan. Thanks!

    1. Hi, Joan! I haven’t made this recipe as a chocolate pecan pie, but it sounds delicious. I haven’t tried this, so keep that in mind, but I think I would try adding mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the filling (butter, corn syrup, brown sugar) mixture. Let me know if you try it and how it goes!

  3. I found out after I started that I didn’t have apples, but I had enough of the other two fillings to make 23 of the pies. I didn’t have corn syrup or enough brown sugar, but I had Sorghum syrup and cane sugar it gave the Pecan pies a really nice and less sweet flavor. The only problem I had was that the temp and time were too hot and long for me here in Tucson. I even have an oven thermometer that showed the correct temperature. I did these and three flavors of mousse in cookie cups and these were gone and I still had some of the chocolate peanut butter mousse in cookie cups. I had lots of compliments. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. I am making them again, with the apple pies this time, for my husband to take with him on Monday.

  4. I want to make these for an upcoming event where we are camping starting Thursday so I need to make ahead of time. If I’m serving them on Friday night would it be better to make ahead and freeze? Would they be ok if I made them Tuesday or Wednesday and just kept in fridge?

    1. Hi, Amy! Yes, just refrigerate beautifully. They will stay great refrigerated for 3-4 days so there’s no need to freeze for that short of time. Enjoy and have fun on your trip!

  5. Haven’t tried the pecan or pumpkin ones yet since I had so many apples to last minute use (not enough for cider but just enough for many batches of these!) and they are my dads new favorite! So yummy and flavorful 😋

    1. Hi, Christina! Yay! I’m so glad he loves them. And I definitely hope you’ll try the others, too. SO good. Enjoy!

      1. That is funny Christina. As you can see from my post, I made the other two and am looking forward to making the apple ones tomorrow. Everyone loved the pies.
