Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots! BEST THING EVER! These are so cute and delicious! - The Cookie RookieIt’s Pumpkin Week here at The Cookie Rookie, and I might as well keep the week rolling with one of my favorite all-time pumpkin recipes, PUMPKIN PIE JELLO SHOTS!!! I love fun and unique cocktails, and jello shots fit into that category.  These bite-sized treats are adorable, easy, and so delicious.  They’re dangerously pop-able! (Like really, dangerous)

Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots! BEST THING EVER! These are so cute and delicious! - The Cookie Rookie Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots! BEST THING EVER! These are so cute and delicious! - The Cookie RookieI was so inspired when I saw this recipe on Pinterest.  What a super cute (and super yummy) idea!! I knew I wanted to make them smaller, but loved her idea and recipe (and secretly wished I had come up with it all on my own!!!).  After a few tweaks and adjustments…I had my new favorite pumpkin recipe.  And wow are they good.

Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots! BEST THING EVER! These are so cute and delicious! - The Cookie Rookie Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots! BEST THING EVER! These are so cute and delicious! - The Cookie RookieI first tried them with premade phyllo dough mini shells. The jello soaked in to the shells, and didn’t set up at all.  Shucks!! Back to the drawing board.  I ended up using pie crust in a mini muffin tin to make these perfect little beauties.  They worked like a charm.  And using actual pie crust makes these taste even more like the best dessert on the planet…pumpkin pie.  Win, win.

      Hi, How many does this recipe make! Thanks for posting it. It looks great and I'm going to try it!
        Becky Hardin
        It makes about 20 shots, depending on the size of the mini muffins you use. Hope you love it!!
Melissa
What size of unflavored gelatin packets???
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Melissa, the 1 oz packets that are sold 4 to a box. Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by!
Traci
How long do you let it simmer?

Despite your warning, I tried using a mini phyllo shells (just because they are so convenient!). Following guidance from another recipe (http://jellomoldmistress.com/2014/06/09/apple-pie-ala-mode-jello-shots/), I let the pumpkin pie jello chill until slightly thickened (about 50 minutes), and then spooned it into the cups. It did the trick!
    Becky Hardin
    Wow, I love this comment! I've always wanted to make them again and use the phyllos, that is SUCH a good tip! Thanks so much for sharing that!

Pinnacle makes a pumpkin pie vodka that is out now and will be out until after the holidays. It would be really good in these.
Megan
I have Smirnoff Kissed Caramel vodka and plain vodka. Which do you think would taste better? I am all about jello shots without jello!
skylar
Is there a way to add more vodka? 1/2 seems like such a small amount for 20 servings thanks!
    Becky Hardin
    You could add a bit more, the problem is with the texture. They will easily fall apart if you add too much. Hope you love them still!
