These delicious pumpkin pie bites are the ultimate make-ahead dessert, designed to be prepared in advance and conveniently refrigerated until serving time. Thanks to Anytime Freezer Trays, you can achieve perfectly portioned servings, allowing you to cool, cover with the lid, and stow them away with ease. Elevate your holiday planning with this time-saving treat that rivals the original!

Note: We tested this recipe with Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin. Organic or homemade pumpkin puree will likely contain more moisture and may prevent the filling from setting up.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w



½-Cup Anytime Freezer Tray


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup (40g) graham cracker crumbs
  • ¾ cup (175g) canned pumpkin puree (Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin)
  • ½ cup (120ml) heavy cream
  • ½ cup (80g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger powder
  • Whipped cream, for serving (if desired)
  • Toasted Pumpkin seeds, for serving (if desired)


  1. Make the crust: Combine melted butter and the graham cracker crumbs and mix well. Evenly distribute the crust mixture (about 3 tablespoons) into each cup of the 1/2 Cup Anytime Freezer Trays and press to form the crust.
  2. Make the filling: In a separate bowl, whisk the pumpkin purée, heavy cream, brown sugar, cornstarch, salt, vanilla, pumpkin spice, and ginger until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Divide the mixture into each cavity of the Freezer Trays and smooth out the top.
  3. Cook in the microwave uncovered at Power Level 5tooltip for 5:30-6 minutes per tray, or until the batter puffs slightly on the side and gently jiggles when gently shaken.
  4. Cool completely in the fridge, for about 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream and garnish with pumpkin seeds, if desired. Note: carefully run a knife or spatula around the sides and push the tray portion carefully to remove the pies. Partially freezing them can make this process easier. 

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add dark chocolate chips to the filling for a decadent twist.
  • Top each bite with whipped cream and toasted pumpkin seeds.
  • Top with candied nuts instead of pumpkin seeds.

Recipe notes

  • Organic or homemade pumpkin puree will likely contain more moisture and may prevent the filling from setting up.
  • You can use any cookie crumbs (gingerbread, shortbread, chocolate, etc) for the crust.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
