Last year, I carted 6 rectangular pies around the country for Thanksgiving. This year, I will be taking the pies with me to work first, before carting them to another part of the country. I will be zig-zagging my way South for our next Thanksgiving celebration and I wanted something that would be easier to carry and put in different fridges. I also did not want to have to hunt for pie tins.
Mini pies were the solution! I made them in my cupcake tins. With one batch of pumpkin pie filling, I got 40-some mini pies. This also required 3 batches of crust. I par baked them for heating up on the day.
What Thanksgiving adaptations have you tried? Which have been disasters and which ones worth repeating?
