The only difference was that I used a pumpkin pie filling, and I made my filling a little bit thicker for the pie pops by not adding all of the evaporated milk that the recipe called for. I just used the recipe on the back of the canned pumpkin, however this is way too much filling for just pie pops! Unless you're planning on making hundreds of them. ;) I made about 12 pie pops and also used my filling to make mini pumpkin pies in a mini muffin tray and still had leftover filling. You could still fill a 9" pie crust really well after making 12 pie pops because you only use a very small amount of filling in each pie pop.
To make the mini pumpkin pies I cut circles from the pie crust just like I did for the pie pops, but placed them in the mini muffin trays using a pampered chef mini-tart shaper. Then filled each one with filling just below the top of the crusts. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
