Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? I can’t wait for the food! Next to Halloween, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love to make the dessert, and I love to make it fun. I decided to make my little Minecraft minions a little themed treat to take along to Thanksgiving at grandma’s house. They are just gonna love these Mincraft Creeper Mini Pumpkin Pies.
Usually we head to grandma’s house and almost immediately have our big Thanksgiving meal for lunch. Then, grandpa watches football and the rest of us either have a marathon of board games or video games.
These are very easy to make. I used a jumbo muffin pan and a 6-inch circular cookie cutter to make the pie shells from refrigerated pie crust. Then, I made my usual pumpkin pie (which is my favorite one with evaporated milk on the back of the Libby Pumpkin Pie can).
While they were baking, I used the leftover pie crust and cut out little Minecraft Creeper faces with a knife, It’s pretty simple since you’re basically just cutting straight lines.
While the pies were cooling, I baked the little creeper faces for about 10 minutes. Then, I placed them on the pies, and we now have Creeper Pumpkin Pies!
