Pumpkin Pie Pots

Pumpkin Pie Pots

There is one thing that my oldest daughter always asks me to make for Thanksgiving and its pumpkin pie.  Last year when this happened, my other daughter asked me what does pumpkin pie taste like. She is at the age where she is getting curious of foods she has never had. I looked at both of them and a gut wrenching sadness fell over me. I realized that my younger daughter has never had a bite of her sister’s favorite foods and my older daughter has given up many things that she loves for her sister. After the passing sadness, I put on a smile and decided to do something about it.  I made 4 different pies and had the girls test them out.  I realized what they really loved was the custard-like filling. I decided to tweak the filling to be sturdy enough to be cook in a ramekin and yet still be the delicate pumpkin custard of the pie. If only you could see the smiles on the kids’s faces as they tried the final dessert.

  2. Put all the ingredients (EXCEPT THE SPRAY OIL) into a bowl.

  4. Set the batter aside and lightly spray the inside of each ramekin.
  5. Equally fill each ramekin with the batter you made earlier.
  6. Place the 4 ramekins into the baking pan and fill the baking pan halfway with water.
  7. Gently place the pan into the oven and bake for approximately 45min.
  8. When done you should be able to insert a toothpick in the center and pull it out cleanly.
  9. Let it cool before serving and you can either top with whip cream, pumpkin seeds or just eat it as is.
  10. Enjoy!

      Gluten Free crust is not the easiest thing to make and sometimes it can be pretty expensive. At the end, it just made sense for us to skip it all together. My kids always went for the “filling” anyways. 🙂
