What to do with canned cinnamon rolls is a question that pops up all the time. Well, we have the answer for you. Use pre-made cinnamon rolls as the crust for these easy mini pumpkin pies. 

I’m not going to lie. I’ve never had a pumpkin pie in my life until about two years ago.

Even then, it was just for Thanksgiving dinner and I stuck with the cranberry sauce and apple crisp instead of venturing into the dessert section. That is, until now!

What if there were mini-pumpkin pies that you could eat with your hands? Honestly, how great would that be?! Well, guess what…I found them!

They’re called Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pie Cups and they are so good!

The best part is they are super easy to make too which means that mom can whip up a batch of these babies any day she wants without needing hours on end in the kitchen or special equipment (or even knowing how to!)

If you’re looking for a new pumpkin pie recipe this year, try these Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pie Cups! Our original Pumpkin Pie Bites recipe is made with a regular crust if you prefer that.

These are like eating mini cinnamon rolls but better because they have all the yummy flavors we know and love in a pumpkin pie.

Plus, they’re so much easier to make than baking your own whole-wheat crusts or making individual crusts from scratch–and they taste amazing too!
