Mini Pumpkin Tarts


Mini tarts are suitable for any occasion and these Mini Pumpkin Tarts are quite easy to make and easy to eat because of the size.  You can half-bake the tart shells a day ahead and chill them in the fridge overnight, then make the filling the next day. Overall these mini tarts are quite fragrant because of the added almond and they are not overly sweet. Definitely impressive when they are served to your guests.






Mini Pumpkin Tarts

    Ingredients: makes 25
    Tart Pastry
    80g Butter
    40g Icing sugar
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1 Egg, lightly beaten
    1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
    200g Plain flour

     Filling
     350g Pumpkin, skinned
     35g Sugar
     45g Ground almond, sifted
     1 Egg
     extra  toasted almond flakes for topping

     Method:
     Tart Pastry
  • Cream butter, icing sugar and salt until fluffy.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Sift flour onto the worktop and make a hole in the center. Add in the butter mixture. Knead to soft dough, cover and set aside for about 30 minutes.
  • Press a small piece of dough into each greased tart tin. Trim the edges with a sharp knife. (please refer this step from my previous post Potato Pie) Bake at preheated oven 180 degrees C for 10 minutes.
      Pumpkin Filling
  • Peel and seed pumpkin. Cut into small pieces and steam until done, about 10 minutes.
  • Mash cooked pumpkin with a fork and combine sugar, egg and ground almond together to a thick paste.
  • Fill piping bag with paste and pipe it on the prepared tarts. Garnish with almond flakes.
  • Bake at 180 degrees C for about 20 minutes.


Enjoy and Have a Wonderful Weekend!

  31. Hi Ann,

    With one each mouthful, I reckon these mini tarts can disappear very quickly in our house.

  33. Good Day Ann

    I made the mini pumpkin tarts using your recipe last Saturday. My sister, neighbour and friends gave the thumbs-up, esp. the pumpkin filling.

    Thank you for the good recipe. I just bought another big orange pumpkin at Giant Supermarket at 10 cents per 100 gms and will make again. I usually buy local or Malaysia pumpkins but happened to see this huge orange type (do not know country of original). Hope the pumpkin puree will be as good as the one I used last Saturday.

    Blessings

    1. Hi Priscilla, I'm soooo happy to receive your feedback that your family and friends liked these pumpkin tarts.
      I think the pumpkin that you bought was imported from Australia or USA. The first time that I made these pumpkin tarts was using the pumpkin from Australia, it was a bit drier than the Malaysian pumpkin. But the end result was good too.

  34. Hello, I do not have ground almond at home. Is there anything I can substitute with in order to make the filling?

    1. Hi, If you have almond flakes, you can blend them to powder as ground almond or ground hazelnut can also be used.
