Use your food processor, blend all pie filling ingredients until smooth and scoop into separate bowl.

Fill each muffin tin with pie filling using a spoon or icing decorating bag (like I did!). Top each with a pecan if you like. Cover with saran wrap and freeze until solid. When you’re ready to serve, remove from the freezer, pop out pumpkin bites and thaw for at least 5 minutes. Makes approximately 18 mini bites.

The Mad Radish says: To “pop” the bites out of the muffin tins, push a butter knife down the side and lever them out. Even better would be to use silicone muffin molds!

The Snobby Wasabi says: At 12 mini bites a pop, you’d better double this one or you will have the party goers at each other’s throats! Btw, these don’t require you to wear your elastic pants to the party.
