There is nothing quite like homemade pumpkin pie, no matter the holiday. But sometimes you just don’t have the time to bake one from scratch – we get it! Luckily, most grocery stores stock them around the holidays and it’s easy enough to grab a couple before the family feast. While these pies may still be tasty enough, upgrading them gives them that wow-factor that homemade desserts have simply because they were made from scratch. Use this genius pumpkin pie hack the next time you’re serving guests sub-par store-bought pie. You seriously won’t regret it!

Servings: 5-8

Ingredients

  • Store-bought pumpkin pie (we used a jumbo pie)
  • Canned whipped cream
  • Cinnamon

Equipment

  • Round cookie cutter

Method

  • Remove packaging from pie(s), leaving it in the pie plate.
  • Press the cookie cutter into the pie, starting near an edge to ensure you get the maximum number of mini pies. Repeat until you've used up the whole pie.
  • Using a small spoon, carefully scoop out the excess pie. Put in a sealed container for later (I sense a midnight snack!).
  • Carefully lift the mini pies out of the pie plate and place on a serving plate.
  • Top with canned whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon just before serving. Enjoy!

Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
