Mini Pumpkin Pies in a Jar

We’ve turned our Pumpkin Pie recipe upside down. Not only is this a lighter version of the traditional holiday treat, there’s no chance of a soggy crust since the crust is on the top. These make a beautiful presentation at a holiday dinner or a nice gift to tuck into a holiday bag to send home.
