Things for you to do....

So yes, I stole this photo from the website...but I guarantee you that I have made these delectable little treats more times in my life than I can count...and people always ask for the recipe. I plan on making some later today for a MOPS gathering but I wanted to post this today so that is why I stole the photo. :) These are my absolute favorite Fall treat...tiny little bites of pumpkin pie tasting goodness. :) Make them and you will be happy with YOU. :)

Pumpkin Pie Tarts
Gather up these goodies:

3 packages (15 tarts each) pre-baked frozen mini pastry shells (I use Athens Mini Fillo Shells)
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
2 cups (plus extra for garnish) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 teaspoon (plus extra for garnish) pumpkin pie spice
1 (3.4-ounce) package cheesecake-flavor instant pudding and pie filling
Mint leaves (for garnish)

1. Remove the shells from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, combine the pumpkin, whipped topping, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl, whisking until smooth. Add the pudding mix and whisk until smooth and thick.
3. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the filling into each of the shells (you can also pipe the filling with a pastry bag or a plastic sandwich bag with one corner snipped off), then top the tarts with whipped topping, a sprinkling of the pumpkin pie spice, and a mint leaf, if you like. Makes 45 tarts.

I found this cute little piggy craft/snack...go here to find out more.

Then there are these cuties. Little Acorn Pumpkins. :) Go HERE.

And who says gourds are boring? Go HERE.

And here is one more for you. Little Forest can GO HERE.

I borrowed all of these fun ideas from Family Fun Magazine...if you don't get it and you have or work with children then you should...I have gotten it for years...long before I had Moses. :) Plus it is super cheap and always FULL of great ideas. :)

Another thing for you to do...come back tomorrow...I just might have a giveaway if I can get my act together. :) Now you can't say you don't have anything to shooo!

Oh those pumpkin mini tarts look so yummy! I love pumpkin pie, but I have never been able to find canned pumpkin here in Australia. So if I want pumpkin pie I have to start with a whole pumpkin:(

(Takes too long when there are 4 littlies underfoot.)
