These Cheese and Cracker Pumpkin Pie Bites are the perfect appetizer for any holiday get-together. They’re so easy to make and almost too cute to eat!
When I saw these cheese and cracker pumpkin pie bites on social media, I knew I had to add them to my collection of easy appetizers!
They were so fun to make and I know they’ll be a hit at all of your parties.
This recipe works because it’s:
- Super easy. All you need is 4 ingredients to create these miniature “pumpkin pie slices.”
- A quick, last-minute snack. If you forgot until the last minute that you needed to bring something to a dinner party, this is the appetizer for you.
- Perfect for the holidays! These cheese and cracker bites are so festive for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Slice a 16-ounce block of cheddar cheese in half so you have 2 thinner rectangles.
Arrange 4 Triscuit Thin Crisps crackers on the cheese half so they all fit and then cut out a triangle of cheese to fit each cracker.
Repeat with the other rectangle of cheese.
Spoon 1/4 cup of whipped cream cheese into a piping bag with a star tip.
Pipe a small line of cream cheese on each Triscuit cracker and place the cheese triangle on top. Then pipe some cream cheese onto the bottom of 8 Chicken in a Biskit crackers and press it on the back of the triangle so it’s standing up.
Add a small dot of cream cheese to the top of each cheese and cracker pie to look like whipped cream.
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
These pumpkin pie cheese and crackers make a great Thanksgiving appetizer! You can serve them on a charcuterie board with other meats, cheeses, and vegetables and a few of the dips suggested below.
Triscuit offers a few different flavors of the Thin Crisps so you can give your pumpkin pie appetizers a unique flavor based on which cracker you choose.
You can also choose a flavored cream cheese if you don’t want to use plain.
If you don’t have professional piping bags, you can use regular sandwich bags! Just place the bag over a small cup and fill it with the whipped cream cheese. You don’t have to worry about not having a star tip either. A nice round dot of cream cheese on top of the cracker pie will look great!
Once you’re done making your “pumpkin pies,” just squeeze whatever cream cheese you have leftover back into the container.
I always buy the rectangle blocks of cheddar cheese but if you don’t want to deal with cutting the block in half and having lots of leftover cheese you can buy a square block like Cracker Barrel that will give you a piece closer to the size of the Triscuit.
The best way to eat these snacks is the way you would normally eat a piece of pie. Start at the tip and then when you’ve almost finished the Triscuit, you can tip the pie on its side to eat the Chicken cracker. That way you get cheese and cracker in every bite!
Do not refrigerate these appetizers! The crackers will go soggy and will not be…well…appetizing 😉 The cheese and crackers should be served soon after making them so I suggest only preparing what you know will get eaten.
If you do have leftovers, you should remove the cheese from the crackers and save the triangles in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The crackers will need to be eaten within a few hours since they have cream cheese on them. Then you can reassemble the pies when you’re ready to serve.
