I love pumpkin pie, and small ones are easy to grab on the go, and pumpkin is considered a vegetable so it's actually good for you unlike most of your desserts with tons of sugar.

Step 1: Make the Crust

Mix 1 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of butter until crumbly, then add 3 tablespoons of water mix until dough forms.

On a well floured board roll the dough to be a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 5 inch round circles And put in muffin or cupcake pans and shape the edges as you like. Set it aside preferably in a cool place.

Step 2: Make the Filling

In a mixing bowl add 1 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/3 cup of honey, 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt, 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, and mix thoroughly.

Beat 1 egg separately.

Add 1/3 cup heavy cream and the beat egg to the pumpkin mixture and mix.

Step 3: Pour and Bake
