The thing is I really like the American traditions like halloween and thanksgiving and pumpkin pie is one of the things which is always a must to make. These mini Pumpkin pie Tartes is my version of a traditional pumpkin pie. You could also just make one big pie if you want to with this recipe you just need to bake it longer and you will have some dough left to make some beautiful decorations like leafs.
These mini Pumpkin Pie tastes are made with a whole grain crust and are dairy free, because I’ve used condensed milk made of coconut and dairy free milk. One bite and you want to make it as often as possible and they are not too overwhelmingly sweet.
They are perfect for your next gathering with friends or family.
How to make these these delicious mini Pumpkin Pie Tartes
Lets start with the whole grain crust
You will need:
- whole grain flour
- granulated sugar for the sweetnes
- brown sugar for the caramel taste
- ice cold water
In a large mixing bowl combine whole grain flour, brown and granulated sugar and salt.
Add the butter cubes and rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs. You can also use a pastry knife. Add the ice water and combine everything to a dough. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Now to make the delicious dairy free pumpkin pie filling
I’ve used for the pumpkin pie filling sweetened condensed coconut milk, which is dairy free and I got it on Amazon. If you want to there is a recipe which I’ve found online to make your own, but I can’t guarantee if it works that well.
You will need:
- pumpkin purée
- milk (I’ve used dairy free milk)
- sweetend condensed coconut milk
- brown sugar, for the caramel flavor taste
- granulated sugar
- homemade pumpkin spice, you can find my recipe here
- vanilla extract
First we beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the pumpkin purée, the coconut condensed milk, milk, vanilla extract and combine.
Add the brown sugar, the granulated sugar, salt, pumpkin spice and cinnamon and combine until corporated.
Preheat oven to 200°C and grease the mini tarte pans.
Divide the dough in 3 parts. Take each part and divide again in three parts. Roll out your dough on a well floured surface or on a pastry cloth. Roll out each to fit the size of the mini tarte pans. Transfer each carefully to the mini tarte pans and shape the crust to your liking.
Pour the filling into the unbaked tartes.
First bake the tartes at 200°C for 15 minutes.
Then reduce the temperature to 170°C and continue to bake for 25 minutes. They are ready if you instert a knive and comes out clean. It may wobble but it will firm-up as it cools.
Let the mini pie tartes completely cool after baking at least 2 hours.
We’ve decorated these mini Pumpkin pie tastes with mini Baiser drops. We used 1/2 of Ninas pavlova crown recipe (here) and then used an icing bag to make little meringue drops. Preheat the oven to 150°C and then when you place the meringue into the oven reduce the heat to 120°C and bake for 10-15 minutes. Then carefully place them on to the pies.
