These portion-sized mini pumpkin pies are low in calories and fat, which means you can enjoy one or two, depending how full you are after all that turkey or ham. These little pumpkin pies are also great for parties.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes

Total Time: 34 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 12 sheets (9 X 13) phyllo dough
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • 1 12-ounce can fat-free condensed milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch salt

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Divide phyllo into one stack of four sheets, and one stack of eight sheets. Cover second stack with a damp cloth until ready to use.

With the first stack, spray first sheet with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with a little brown sugar. Place next sheet on top and repeat. Do the same with the third, then top off with the fourth sheet.

Cut stack into 12 rectangles (4 columns, three rows).

Press each rectangle into a 12-cup muffin pan.

Uncover stack of eight sheets, remove the next four sheets, and cover remaining four with damp cloth.

Again, spray first of the next four sheets with cooking spray, sprinkle with a little brown sugar and top with the next sheet until the fourth sheet is used. Cut into 12 rectangles and push each into a second muffin pan.

Repeat with remaining sheets so that you have filled three 12-cup muffin pans.

In a medium bowl, mix pumpkin puree and spices , followed by the condensed milk, egg and egg white. Add pinch of salt and combine well.

Add 1 tablespoon of pumpkin mixture to each phyllo cup.

Bake in oven for 12-14 minutes, until pumpkin is set.

Good but don't make ahead, Member AmyKareena

I doubled the recipe and made 30 mini pies and 1 whole pie. Luckily I made it the morning of our get-together, it went over well fresh. Hubby loved them and the filling was awesome no matter what. The Phyllo dough is iffy though. It did add some flavor and was good at first. But at the end of the party the 2 or three mini's that were left over were very soggy and falling apart. The phyllo dough was absorbing moisture from the filling. At home 2 days later we ate the big pie I made. The top crust that was stick up out of the pie(I'd put the square of phyllo in the round pie dish, cut around it and then doubled it over to make a crust) was okay- it stood up well and added a slight brownsugary crunch. But the phyllo in the pan below the filling was completely soggy. It added no flavor. Need to try to find a different crust alternative I think. The filling tho is golden- everyone loved it.
