I don't know about you but I cannot wait for Thanksgiving. We rented a house in Orlando with Gabe's family. This will be our first Thanksgiving as Husband and Wife and I will be cooking up a storm!! I am responsible for 4 side dishes, a ham and dessert! Wednesday night is going to be a busy one for me. Our meal is planned for 1pm so we can head to the Magic Kingdom afterwards and walk off the Turkey. 
While I love pies, I have a texture issue with piecrust. If a pie is in front of me, I only eat the filling which makes pumpkin pie difficult. That's when I thought to make Pumpkin Pie shooters thanks to the influence of pinterest. Instead of using pie crust, I used caramel corn over Cool Whip giving it a salted caramel flavor.
This wasn't my original plan for my deconstructed pumpkin pie recipe. I had a grand idea to make pumpkin pie pops. I don't want to discuss the ending results or the amount of Mrs. Smith's pies I went through over the past three days. Back to my shooters!!!
This was a super easy dessert to deconstruct once I got the hang of it. I took the pumpkin pie mixture, placed it on the bottom of my dessert glass, topped with cool whip, followed with crushed caramel corn. Not only are they cute, they are delicious. The caramel corn was perfect with the pumpkin pie.

Cook pie according to directions. Let cool all the way. Puree the filling with a tablespoon at a time of heavy whipping cream, until you get a pudding like consistency. You can also substitute with a cream based liquor for an adult version (Bailey's makes a salted caramel).
Fill each shooter 2/3 with the pumpkin mixture
Top with Cool Whip
Crush Caramel Corn and place on top. Serve immediately
