Small batch cooking and baking is something I know well because of experience. Truth is I’ve been cooking for myself for about six years now (minus when my parents and brother visit). I never thought much of it until I started my big girl job where everyone out here has a family to feed. Coworkers have mentioned to me time and again about how they couldn’t do what I do, that they couldn’t just make mashed potatoes for one person and would get bored with too many leftovers (not to mention they think I drive 2.5 hours home to my parents every single weekend like I’m back in college). Funny how lifestyles can vary so much. I knew when November rolled around, I wanted to make Pumpkin Pie For Two so those who do cook for one or two people can still enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving without trying to pawn the extra pie on others. And I’m not forgetting about you, the person who cooks for a crowd. Maybe you’re the only one in the family who enjoys pumpkin pie. Or if everyone loves pie, you can easily double or even triple the recipe so there will be pie for all.

I was debating on whether I could even officially call these pies because there is no pie crust involved. Just pumpkin pie filling cut down to two servings and baked in ramekins. If you can forgive me for that technicality, I promise you won’t miss the crust.

Because I’m making such a small batch, I had to find a way to make the filling without the egg. That’s where my friend the cornstarch comes into play. Used as a thickener, you still get the consistency of pumpkin pie without having to cut an egg in half. Who has time for half an egg, anyway?

As I said earlier, you can easily do some math and make this recipe for a crowd. I can imagine after Thanksgiving dinner is over, bringing out a tray of these ramekins for an elegant ending. Or maybe you are having company over and don’t have time to mess with a pie crust. However you eat your pie, you’re just one spoonful away from deliciousness.

  1. Yay for smaller Thanksgiving recipes!

  2. Mmmm these look so yummy!!! So easy and simple and who needs crust!? pshhh! :)

  3. As much as I WANT to eat an entire pie by myself, I certainly don’t need to so thank you for coming up with a 2 person recipe! No crust, no problem! Just scoop it up with cookies! I’m brilliant, no?

  4. Thank you so much for the recipe. I have a gluten free, egg free child who really wants a pumpkin pie. Food allergies are hard on a kid but this recipe may just make it a little easier. Thanks!!!

    This looks perfect for me to make for my daughter who is allergic to eggs, milk and peanuts. I’m going to try to make these for her for Christmas. I hope the 1/3 cup of evaporated milk can be easily replaced with 1/3 cup of almond milk. I will let you know if it still cooks properly. This will be a lifesavor for me if it works. I never know what to make for her to eat for dessert since she is allergic to so many things that are in all holiday favorites.

    • I’m not sure, but since it’s baked in a ramekin and not an actual pie, you don’t have to worry if it spreads too much (like a failed custard pie). I hope your daughter enjoys it!

  6. My daughter loves pumpkin pies and has wheat allergies. This looks like a great recipe, except for the sugar. She also cannot eat refined sugar. Please tell me a substitute appropriate for this recipe. Thank you. Judith

  7. Your picture looks like a deflated carrot soufflé (albeit yummily appealing).
