With this easy no-bake recipe, everyone gets a No Bake Pumpkin pie in a jar all to themselves! Enjoy layers of crunchy gingersnap cookie crust, spiced pumpkin pie filling and silky cream cheese mousse. One of our favorite pumpkin desserts!
I had a whole lot of fun preparing these mini pumpkin pies. These are easy to make and so much more fun to eat than regular pie. Nobody’s complaining about the size of their piece or making a mess in the pie tin. Everyone just grabs a spoon and digs in and that’s how dessert should be!

The crust layered into this pumpkin pie uses a combination of both graham crackers and gingersnap cookies. It truly gives you the best of both worlds. The mousse is extra soft and fluffy with whipped egg whites and mini marshmallows. Then you have the creamy pumpkin filling in all its glory. It’s seriously so good!
Mini pumpkin pie
We love making our own homemade pumpkin puree and it would work great in this recipe too if you want to make it instead of canned!
- Don’t Forget to Soften the Cream Cheese: If your cream cheese is cold, you’ll have a hard time combining it with the other ingredients. You can let it sit on the counter until it reaches room temperature.
- Do Not Over-Mix the Mousse: Stop whipping your meringue as soon as it forms soft peaks. Then, add it very slowly and carefully to the marshmallow mixture, gently folding until combined. You don’t want to deflate the marshmallows or the egg whites.
Individual pumpkin pie
After everything is layered, you can add yummy toppings. Here are some great choices:
- Gingersnap Cookie crumbs
- Spiced Pecans
- Candy Pumpkins or Candy Corn
- Caramel Sauce
- Chopped Walnuts
- Chocolate Chips or Curls
- Graham Crackers
This will keep in the fridge for several days. If you are making ahead, you will want to add the whipped cream just before serving so that it doesn’t deflate before serving. And you can even freeze it if you have enough space left in your jars for headspace.
