On October 9th, 2012, Tropical Foods had its Flavors of the Fall Recipe Contest with the culinary students at the Charlotte Campus of Johnson & Wales University. This recipe, “Not Your Granny’s” Pumpkin Pie Minis, was created by Tokecia Davidson.


  • 2 cups Tropical Food’s PB&J Mix®, separated
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon, ground
  • ½ tsp. ginger, ground
  • ¼ tsp. cloves, ground
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin, pureed
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 8 tbsp. (1 stick) melted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Separate Tropical Food’s PB&J Mix® so all cranberries are in a bowl, peanut butter chips in a bowl and peanuts in a third.
  • Finely chop peanuts from PB&J Mix® and set aside.
  • Whisk together pumpkin, ¾ cup brown sugar, egg, spices, half of the cranberries and all of the peanut butter chips from PB&J Mix®.
  • Whisk in whipping cream and set aside. In another bowl, mix together ½ cup brown sugar and 1 cup chopped peanuts from PB&J Mix® to form crumble; set aside.
  • For crust, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and ¼ cup chopped peanuts from PB&J Mix®; pat into pie tins.
  • Bake in oven for 5 minutes or until firm.
  • Pour pumpkin mixture into pie tins. Sprinkle crumble mixture on top of each pie and bake pies in oven for 20 minutes or until pies are browned.
  • Garnish with leftover cranberries from PB&J Mix®.
