Pumpkin pies are traditional and synonymous with Fall. 

But to keep things 'fresh' and a little more exciting, I always try to jazz up my traditional recipes with a little twist to bring'em bang up to date - like these dinky pumpkin pies!

They're super easy and quick to make (and eat!), look really cute and are therefore ideal for serving as a sweet appetizer or party food on Halloween, on Thanksgiving, or any other Fall celebration.

For a sugar-free version, I always turn to my sweetener of choice, Truvia® Natural Sweetener

For those who don't know, Truvia® Natural Sweetener is a natural sugar alternative, born from stevia leaf. So it helps me to reduce calories and sugar in my diet, which I love!

To try it for yourself, head over to their site to grab a free sample here.

4. Pour the mixture into a measuring jug so it's easier to add to the pastry shells. Fill the shells right to the top.

5. Bake at 400 deg F or 200 deg C for 13-15 minutes until the center is firm.
