Pumpkin Pecan Tarts

These individual Pumpkin Pecan Tarts sound good, there is no need to cut a slice and no need to share. You can even add a nice dollop of low fat topping to make them even tastier.

 

Ingredients

  • 8 sprays cooking spray, divided
  • 15 oz pumpkin puree, canned
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pecans
  • 24 wonton wrappers

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together pumpkin, sugar, milk, egg, pumpkin pie spice, ginger and salt.
  4. Place a wonton wrapper in bottom of each prepared muffin cup (corners will be sticking up); lightly coat wontons with cooking spray.
  5. Place a second wonton in each muffin cup on an angle, so each muffin cup has 8 wonton wrapper corners sticking up.
  6. Evenly divide filling among muffin cups; smooth filling with back of a spoon and sprinkle with pecans.
  7. Bake until wontons are crispy and browned, about 13 – 17 minutes. (Check after 3 – 4 minutes to see if edges of tartlets start to burn. If they do, cover pan loosely with foil and continue baking until filling is set.)
