PUMPKIN PECAN PIE TARTS

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has some fun plans for the weekend. I'll be going to a costume party tomorrow evening then lifting at my second weightlifting competition Sunday afternoon. It should be a busy fun filled time. I've been trying to think of some delicious treats to bring to the party and decided to bust out my mini tart pan. This spiralled into several different recipe ideas and I ended up spending the entire day making a variety of mini tarts. It was fun and tasty. This was one of my favorites and it's the perfect dessert/appetizer to take or put out at your party this weekend or anytime during the holiday season. I hope you enjoy them and have a safe and fun Halloween. Enjoy your treats.

  3. Push each crust into the lining of your tart pan.
  4. Next prepare the pumpkin pie filling by blending all ingredients together in a bowl with a hand mixer.
  5. When thoroughly combined fill each tart, almost to the top of the crust.
