Expert Tips

Use pumpkin pie mix for this recipe, not canned pumpkin. Pumpkin pie mix includes all the spice flavors and sweetness you would usually add to canned pumpkin—making these pie cups even easier to prep.
To toast pecans, spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake at 350°F 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
Cinnamon can be substituted for the pumpkin pie spice in this recipe.
Use the leftover pumpkin pie mix to double this recipe.
