Light and Spicy Pumpkin Pie Tarts

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

These are so light and delicious, they give a new spin to traditional pumpkin pie! These are great to bring to potlucks and parties. They are a real eye catcher with a dollop of whipped cream on top. The batter can also be poured into a 9 inch pie shell rather than the tart shells.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients gently with a spatula.
  2. Spoon batter into tart shells and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes.
  4. Remove immediately from cookie sheet onto cooling racks. Enjoy!

Excellent recipe. This is the first time I've made a sweet dish with pumpkin, so was very nervous about the task. I too took the trays out of the oven after 20 minutes as the pastry started to go very brown and the centre looked cooked. (I used store bought pastry.) Thanks a great one to use again.

Delicious! This recipe is absolutely perfect - nice & spicy & smooth & rich! Very easy to make. I only baked for about 20 minutes at 350 because my homemade crust was starting to get really brown. I made these last week to enter in the county fair & I only place 3rd in the "any other variety" tarts category - I definitely should have won first ;)

Easily my favorite recipe that I have tried from recipezaar! I am Celiac and have not had pumpkin pie in two years until I tried this! I have made both tarts and pies with this recipe, and I've had compliments everytime I've made it.
