Pumpkin Pie Bites

FINALLY my favorite time of year is here.....FALL!!!! (Of course I may be a little partial since my birthday is on Halloween.) So excited for cooler weather, football games and everything pumpkin!!! I've seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest and just knew that I would love it. I adapted the original recipe from using a regular sized muffin pan to a mini-muffin pan. If you don't have a mini-muffin pan then you are missing out.....go buy 2 of them right now! There is less guilt when you pop a bite sized dessert into your mouth......right??? It combines the simple flavors of pumpkin pie without the mess of making a pie crust. Plus these tiny treats make it easy to enjoy a bite of pumpkin whenever you want! 
Pumpkin Pie Bites
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin puree
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup evaporated milk (or any type of milk)
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray nonstick cooking spray on a mini-muffin tin pan. In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and milk.  Add the flour, pumpkin spice, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the mixture and stir until all ingredients are combined. Fill each mini-muffin cup 2/3's full. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool pumpkin pie bites in the pan for 10 minutes; remove from pan and keep refrigerated. Top with whipped cream (or cream cheese frosting) and a dash of pumpkin pie spice whenever you are ready to enjoy a great fall dessert!!!

Note: This recipe made 45 mini pumpkin bites.
