Nothing says love quite like a dessert made just for you. And thanks to smart safety precautions and travel restrictions, our abridged list of Thanksgiving guests this year may not be able to tackle the entire deep-dish pumpkin pie that we've made in the past. Enter these mini pies, aka the perfectly portioned way to end the Thanksgiving meal this year. The easy press-in crust is made with Speculoos cookies, a crunchy Dutch biscuit made with brown sugar and warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves—a perfect pairing for the spicy sweet pumpkin filling. The pies get their kick from grated fresh ginger, but it mellows under a pillowy dollop of whipped cream. Crystallized ginger sprinkled over top adds a sparkly holiday-worthy finish, but feel free to use some extra cookie crumbs instead.
Loved this recipe! Super easy to make even with 2 little ones "helping".. haven't shared with my family yet (they're for Thanksgiving tomorrow), but I tried one and they are so flipping yummy. Will be making again!
