How to make Jello Shots (Pumpkin Flavor)

I ended up using pie crust in a mini muffin tin to make this perfect little pumpkin pie jello shot recipe. It worked like a charm! Plus, using actual pie crust makes them taste even more like pumpkin pie. Yum! By far the best jello shots, and so fun to make!

How to make Pumpkin Pie Shots:

  1. Cut pie dough into small circles. I used a skinny drinking glass to press into the dough and make my circles. Use something that is about the size of the mini muffin pan slots.
  2. Place the dough circles into the muffin tin, and bake them according to the pie dough package instructions. Set them aside to cool once they’re done.
  3. Pour 1 cup of water into a saucepan, then sprinkle the gelatin packets over the water. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
  4. Set the stove to medium-high heat, then stir in the pumpkin and sugar. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and then turn off the heat and let it cool.
  5. Mix in the rum/vodka (you can use either), heavy cream, and water.
  6. Now pour the gelatin mixture into the pie crust, and let them set in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 8 hours).

Adding a bit of whipped cream on top before serving adds a little extra fun to this pumpkin pie jello shot recipe!

How long does it take to make jello shots?

Overall, the process of making jello shots is pretty short. Prep time is about 20 minutes or so, so these are really easy. However, jello shots need time to set! They need at least 8 hours in the refrigerator to full set, so I recommend just making them the day before and storing them overnight.

How long do jello shots last?

Typically jello shots will keep in the refrigerator up to about a week or so.
