We hope you're having a fantastic Monday! Can you believe we're just a few weeks away from Halloween? Better yet, can you believe we're at the beginning of the holiday season, which means the beginning of our Holiday Recipe series?! We can't, either. Wrena has been rocking it and working hard at helping everyone plan their holiday meals. Today she has a fantastic pumpkin pie recipe made in Staub mini cocottes. Check out Wrena's how-to video below, along with Wrena's wonderful recipe!





  • 1/3 C. butter, melted

  4. Divide evenly among 6 mini-cocottes. 
  5. Press crust onto the bottom of each cocotte.
