How long do these pumpkin pie rolls take to make?
If you're using store-bought pie dough (as seen in the video), the preparation will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
Naturally, if you're using a homemade pie crust, the time will increase.
The bake time for these pumpkin pie bites is approximately 50-55 minutes, to make sure the pie dough is cooked through the center of the roll.
All total, these will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes, if using store-bought pie dough.
Can these be made in advance?
Yes, but I wouldn't make them more than 1-2 days before when you plan to serve them.
How to store pumpkin pie bites:
They can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
How to serve this easy pumpkin dessert:
I feel these taste best at room temperature, or warmed slightly.
To warm the pumpkin pie bites after they've been refrigerated, place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake them in a preheated 300-degree oven for 7-10 minutes.
Serve them with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream (sadly, not shown because I didn't think that far in advance).
Can these pumpkin pie bites be frozen?
Store them in an air-tight freezer container for up to 2 months, placing parchment paper in-between layers if needed.
