My contributing writer Michelle Lara knocks it out of the park with easy-to-make pumpkin pie bites that can be made in your oven, on your grill or in your pellet smoker. These are a fun spin on Pumpkin Pie that kids love, while also being easy to transport to friends and family’s house during the “holidaze”. 

Thanksgiving Day is just a week away and while most everyone has the main and side dishes on their mind you can’t forget dessert!  These pumpkin pie bites are easy and quick to make and what I love most is you can free up your oven space by grilling them. The flavors in this recipe are traditional fall flavors but the addition of ricotta cheese adds some unexpected richness.

  • Author: Robyn
  • Yield: 40-45 bites 1x



{makes about 40 – 45  pumpkin bites}:

  • 1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin puree
  • 1 (12 oz.) can of evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup of  brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. of ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  •  40 Mini Phyllo Dough Shells {I used Athens Mini Fillo Shells you can find them in the frozen section in your grocery store – you'd need 3 boxes}


In a large mixing bowl mix together all your ingredients. Fill the phyllo shells to the top. Lightly spray a cookie baking dish and place the shells on the sheet pan. Place the sheet pan on the coolest part of your grill. You'll be using your grill as an oven so cook these in indirect heat.

These need about 10 – 12  minutes of cooking time check them halfway to make sure they're not over-browning. They're ready to serve, you can eat them warm or cool them off, they're also great the next day!
