Plump Pumpkin: Easy and charming fall desserts

Pumpkin is one of my MOST LOVED ingredients to bake with. I have three different little plump pumpkin desserts to share.




Tiny Pumpkin Pudding Cups

This first one is SO VERY easy, it literally takes 5 minutes. These are super simple! Kozy Shack (my favorite pudding people) offers a seasonal pudding/pie filling for the fall.


1. Scoop the filling into mini pastry shells.

2. Whip up some whipping cream
and use a pasty bag to pipe on puffy dots of cream.

3. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.


4. Ta Da

Next...

Mini Personal Pumpkin Pies

Again, super simple! Depending on how much time you have you can make a pie crust or use one of Pillsbury's ready to go crusts! Cut the crust to fit the small pie ramikens. Using the Kozy Shack Pie filling, fill ramikens. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes until done. EASY.



I used fall cookie cutters to shape extra crust
and used them to top the mini pies.

I also ground cinnamon and sugar over the top before baking.


These Personal Pumpkin Pies were after school treats for my 3 boys! It's always more fun to enjoy a personal-sized dessert.

Ready to dig in outside on a crisp fall day.



Last Pumpkin Dessert...


Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Ebelskivers


The previous desserts were super easy...this last one...not so much. My mom and I spent an afternoon making Ebelskivers for the first time. Ebelskivers are a Danish treat. They are shaped like an inflated puffy disc. I am an Ebelskiver newbie and this recipe resisted us the entire way through! But I'm ready to try them again, so keep watch for another Ebelskiver post, {take 2} hopefully soon.




Williams Sonoma sells the special pan needed to create these delicious treats. Working quickly to cover the cheese filling with batter as the puffy discs cook and are ready to be turned...


Plump Pumpkin goodness for sweet tummies.
Now go break a sweat,
because these treats
aren't low cal.

For pumpkin-shaped food,
see part two.

Thanks for the EASY pumpkin recipes! I love the tiny pies and pudding cups so much that I am heading to the store to look for the Kozy Shack pumpkin pudding. My DIL has an Ebelskiver pan and loves playing with fillings. I'll pass this one to her...

Lisa, you have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. You will be my inspiration for all things pumpkin. I'm so enjoying everything you've been making. I always love the look and taste of homemade over store bought. These are all perfect for parties too!

Thanks for sharing. :)

Jacqueline said...

These are all so adorable too, glad I didn't miss Part 1. I love the mini pies/pasties. The kids would go crazy for these minis.

Lorie said...

Okay, how did I not even THINK to make pumpkin Ebelskivers!! I am putting that on the menu for breakfast the week of Thanksgiving!

Lorie said...

PS - I have had my Ebelskiver pan for just over a year and it does get easier. I use skewers to turn mine and it works wonderfully!

Pattie T. said...

I JUST bought an Ebelskiver pan! Pumpkin Ebelskivers sound great, but I must confess I'm a bit afraid to even approach the pan.

Loved your post. Everything looks delicious.
