Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups
If you’re a pumpkin and a cookie fan like me, you’re gonna love these Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups. Sugar cookie cups are filled with homemade pumpkin pie filling!
What’s better than a house that smells like baked cookies? A house that smells like baked cookies and pumpkin pie. And that’s exactly what my house smelled like when I made these Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups. This recipe kind of just came to me on a whim. I was trying to decide on what to bake this past weekend and for some reason, something like this popped into my head. Pumpkin Pie and cookies, I guess it was just meant to be!
Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups
These little gems were pretty much a hit with everyone. Ken liked them. The people at work liked them. I liked them. Trust me. If you make these for your family/friends/co-workers, they won’t be able to thank you enough. They may volunteer for you to be the resident baker but hey, there’s nothing wrong with that, right?!
These were pretty simple to make. I had a box of Krusteaz Bakery Style Sugar Cookie Mix that I used for the base and for the pumpkin pie filling, I just used the recipe on the back of a can of Libby’s canned pumpkin. However, I used heavy cream rather than evaporated milk in my pie filling. Here’s a little secret: use heavy cream rather than evaporated milk if you don’t have any evaporated milk on hand. Or, like in my case, use it if you only have one can of evaporated milk left and you need that can for the macaroni and cheese you are making later! So let’s get to that recipe now, shall we? Enjoy!

Thank you, Gloria!
Anything that comes in a small size is instantly adorable! Love these pics. I can never turn down a cookie cup, especially one that looks this tasty and pretty. :)

They sure would be great for a party, Dina!
These are so cute Julie! I’m a huge pumpkin and cookie fan so I know I’ll devour this! :) Pinned! Have a great rest of the week!
Thank you, Anne!
Um, yes please. I will take 2 dozen of those little noshie yummies. I’ll wait here and I am pinning in the meantime!! ;)
LOL. They are all gone now, Claire! But you will be getting some other goodies in the mail soon. I am ordering them today. :)
Julie…love these! I love pumpkin pie, I love sugar cookies and I love, love, love perfect little desserts like these. They look so beautiful! Thanks for sharing your recipe – pinning (that kinda goes without saying but I tell you anyway!) and buffering! Hope you are having a good day!
They are so much fun, Cindy! And everyone at worked liked them. That’s always a plus! Thanks for pinning and sharing!
These would be a great addition to a Thanksgiving table. Lots of small desserts would be so much fun! Then you wouldn’t have to choose between apple OR pumpkin OR pecan OR cake OR whatever else might be offered– you could have a small bit of each! Great job, Julie!
I love the idea of having a lot of little small desserts for the holidays! It’s like an after dinner appetizer party. YES! Thanks so much for stopping by, Holly!
love love love love lveo these!
Thank you, Julianne!
These are just fabulous!! Fall smells are the best at this time of the year :)
Thank you, Zainab! The fall food, beers, smells and weather are the BEST of the year!
How much is a half can of oinking puree? It comes in different sized cans. Which size are you referring to?
Good catch. 15oz can as the larger can would produce way too much pumpkin pie filling!
Pumpkin pie was certainly my favorite back in the day, and it still would be but I cannot eat wheat, dairy, gluten, sugar, soy & nuts :( I will just fantasize and look at your food photos! LOL!
OH NO! I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t eat any of those items. I mean, obviously I would deal with it but I would be oh so sad. :P I’ve tried cutting out wheat and dairy but I always go back to it. I really should cut out anything with high lactose but right now, I just pop a lactaid pill when I eat that stuff.
They are perfect mini treats. Sounds like such a great idea for parties. Pinning.
Thank you, Ash!
These sound delicious! =)
Thank you, Melissa!
Julie these are so adorable and they look amazing, pinning them!
Thank you, Emily!

Quick question…step one says to preheat oven to 375 but then step 5 says to bake at 350….am I missing something? Looking forward to making these this thanksgiving!
Thank you so much for catching that, Stacey! I believe it is 350 but if you can wait a bit, when I get home I will check my notebook to make sure. I will get in touch with you then! :)
Ok, I just checked. It is 375. Thanks for stopping by!

I submitted this question already but not sure it went through. Thanks for the recipe and inspiration to bake. I’m confused on how much sugar to add based on how it’s written -” 1/4 + 2tbsp granulated white sugar”. Does this mean 1/4 cup of sugar?
I don’t recall seeing this question so I apologize for not getting back to you! It’s 1/4C plus 2tbsp of granulated sugar. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy these treats. :)
Thanks so much for the quick reply. I figured it was 1 cup. Baking tonight to bring to the office tomorrow!
You’re welcome! Awesome! I bet they will be a hit!
