Good morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Today I wanted to share some fun little mini pies that I made that would make a great Thanksgiving dessert. I found the mini pie dishes at HomeGoods and then was planning on making the traditional pumpkin pie recipe that I have always made in the past but then saw a Caramel Maple Pumpkin Pie filling and decided to give that a try. I also thought it would be fun to attempt doing a braided crust. I have always admired them but never given one a try. I am so glad I finally did – it actually ended up being quite a bit easier than I had anticipated.

The braids were surprisingly easy – I just sliced the dough in thin slices and started braiding!

Once I got the end of the braid I just pinched on another strand to each end and kept braiding.

Once I had a pretty long braid I just put it around the edge (and used a little bit of water to make sure it stuck well to the pie crust that I already had in there. I also did one with some leaves (although I dropped that one as I was setting it into the oven so that one has no after shots – haha!)

Here it is finished and ready for a garnish of whipped cream!

Ruby slept through this whole process so she fortunately didn’t get into any of the pies like she did the soup! Ha!
