Pie Baked into a Cupcake

Oh wow these are SO good!!!  Get ready to drool!

You are looking at a mini pumpkin pie baked into a cupcake with whipped cream cheese frosting.  

Here's how you do it:

First make your pie crust.  You can make it from scratch or just get the already rolled out kind. 

Pie Crust:  1 cup flour
                 1/2 teaspoon salt
                 1/3 cup shortening
                 2 or 3 tablespoons water
Combine flour and salt.  Cut in shortening.  sprinkle in water until flour is moistened and mixture cleans the side of the bowl.  Gather into a ball and roll out on a floured surface.

No matter what kind of crust you are using, roll out the dough a little extra thin.

I used an ikea cup to stamp put little crusts and placed them in a lightly greased mini cupcake pan.

Next make you pie filling.  I used the extra filling from the pumpkin pie filling I made for the Chocpumple.  But just about any pie you bake would work for this.

Next you bake your cute little pies.  These are super cute!  Your could just stop here, give them out to your neighbors, serve them at a party, whatever they are just cute little pies.

But if you want to keep going, make some cake mix, pour a little in the bottom of a cupcake liner, stick a pie in there, pour a little batter on top, and bake them like you normally would.

Once they are cooled frost them and enjoy!
