Since the time I was very young, my favorite pie has always been pumpkin. The only thing is, I really only love the pumpkin filling and not the crust. I remember in my younger years eating only the filling and leaving the crust sitting on my plate, and then asking for seconds. Sometimes I got lucky and was given another piece! :)
I was craving pumpkin pie and decided that I was going to try to make one crustless - why not?! So I mixed up the filling, poured it evenly into 4 custard dishes, and baked them. They turned out perfectly!!! Since my husband likes crust, I decided to cut out heart shapes from pie crust using my cookie cutters and baking them as if they were cookies. They too turned out great!
Before serving I topped each dessert with whipped cream, and added the pie crust hearts. Oh so yummy!!!
