Pumpkin & Spinach Pie

I created this pumpkin & spinach pie by accident during a rainy weekend. I was feeling really bored one evening & my domestic diva demon strucked me, I start checking out my fridge, freezer & my messy kitchen cupboard ... started to think of any possible recipes to create finger food. Whoooalllaa ... pumpkin & spinach pie recipe dropped down from the sky. They are quite fancy looking & simple to make. I had a few tasters, my collegues & few friends, they gave me positive comments about the pie and they are still standing on their feet till now hehehehe...Happy trying.
