Mmmm... pumpkin pie! While Thanksgiving might be over here in Canada, our friends south of the border are just gearing up for their Thanksgiving weekend and when it comes to pie — is there such a thing as not a good time? Pumpkin pie is the perfect fall treat and this version is not only super simple, but it’s made with Greek yogurt and sweetened with pure maple syrup, so it’s more nutritious than the usual stuff too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup of pure pumpkin purée
- 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (we use full fat)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup or honey
- 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
- 12 pre-made frozen tart shells (or you can make your own if you prefer)
- freshly whipped cream (if desired)
- large liquid measuring cup or bowl with a pouring spout
- baking sheet
Alright, let’s get started, shall we? First off, invite your little chef to dump all of the ingredients into her large liquid measuring cup or spouted bowl.

Next, ask her to whisk everything up until the mixture is smooth and the ingredients are completely incorporated.
Carefully pour the mixture into the mini pie shells until they’re nice and full.

Then place them on a baking sheet and into a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.
When the baking time is up, the mini pumpkin pies should be golden and no longer jiggly.
Allow them to cool and then top with a little freshly whipped cream and serve! Enjoy.
