Every time I make this mini pumpkin pie I wonder why I wait until the fall to bake it. This single serving pie is so perfectly spiced and incredibly delicious I vow every year to stock up on canned pumpkin so I can make it year-round.

This pumpkin pie recipe is good – really, really good.  And it’s custardy – and it’s everything a wonderful pumpkin pie should be.

Single Serving Pumpkin Pie Recipe

I start with a simple graham cracker crust.  Two large sheets of graham crackers, crushed and a bit of sugar along with tablespoon of melted butter mixed together and pressed into the base of a ramekin.  Although you don’t have to do this, I bake my crust in the oven for about 5 minutes to harden it just a bit.  I like it better this way.

The pumpkin custard is canned pumpkin, evaporated milk (or cream or regular milk), an egg, sugar and a mix of spices.  I’ve made single serving pumpkin pies with several types of milk and I’ll tell you that I prefer the pies made with evaporated milk the best.

What To Do With Leftover Canned Pumpkin And Milk

You’ll only use about 1/4 of a cup of both the canned pumpkin and the evaporated milk in this pumpkin pie recipe but don’t toss the remainder. You can use the leftover pumpkin in a small batch of Pumpkin Spice Granola, or a no-bake Pumpkin Cheesecake For One, or even a tender Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping.

Use the leftover evaporated milk in any recipe in which you’d ordinarily use milk or cream. It’s even nice in coffee or tea.  Of course you could always make a few more of these pumpkin pies since they’re so easy to make.

Bake the pumpkin pie in the oven for about 40 minutes and top with whipped cream if you’d like.  So good – so easy and the perfect fall dessert for one!

  1. I had tried another single serving pumpkin pie recipe a year ago and it wasn’t quite flavorful enough. I then made my own which was awful! Too much ginger!! I came across yours yesterday and it was delicious!! Thank you for sharing!


  2. Dear Joanie, I must try your pumpkin pie for one. It looks so delicious. I have four boys and one husband. Not one of them likes pumpkin pie. WHAAAAATTTT? So I end up not making it and missing out because I know I’ll just eat the whole thing. And then… I won’t fit in my Christmas dress. Know what I’m sayin’? This recipe is perfect for me. XO

  3. Such a great idea on the recipes for one section, and glad you are getting confirmation on it too! That’s always encouraging! Totally loving this pumpkin pie recipe, I am usually the only one in my family who eats it so this recipe for one is perfect!

  4. There is something so magical about pumpkin season…well, maybe it’s not magical, but I find it to be a very special baking time of the year! I just love these adorable pumpkin pies for one and need one now in my life with a hot cup of coffee!

    1. The pumpkin pie definitely needed a crust and I love the graham cracker taste with the pumpkin. You’re right, this size is great for portion control 🙂 Thanks, Christie!
