 These little bits of goodness are so delish and super easy to make!  You can find the mini graham cracker crusts in the baking aisle.  They are handy to keep in your pantry and could be used for a variety of different desserts.  It’s getting cooler in Virginia and I love to bake with pumpkin in the fall.  I think I may try a mini pumpkin pie next!
