Cinnamon Toasted Pumpkin Pie Tarts

Can I just say how fabulous these Cinnamon Toasted Pumpkin Pie Tarts were? Quick, simple and cute as a pumpkin tart ๐Ÿ™‚

Break out your Fall cookie cutters….. a leaf, acorn or any fun Fall shape you wanted. These turn out absolutely adorable….and not to mention ultra tasty.

No need to sweat over this recipe, it takes a whole 10 minutes of prep time and they are ready for the oven. Love it! Hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s your line up ๐Ÿ™‚

Is there anything better than a waterfall of sugar!? Lol!

Prepare the pumpkin pie filling.

Mix it all together.

Cut out your cute little pumpkin tart forms!

Brush each with butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Spoon pumpkin pie filling onto center of your pumpkins and time to bake!

Mmmm, toasted and tasty!


Cinnamon Toasted Pumpkin Pie Tarts

1 Cup canned pumpkin

1/4 Cup granulated sugar

1/4 Cup heavy whipping cream

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

4 sheets (2 boxes) of puff pastry, thawed

3 Tablespoons melted butter

3 Tablespoons granulated sugar

1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon

Melted chocolate for drizzling (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix the pumpkin, sugar, heavy cream, egg, cinnamon and nutmeg until creamy and well combined.

2. Place puff pastry onto a lightly floured countertop and cut out 4 pumpkins per sheet of pastry. Place pumpkin cut outs onto silpat or parchment lined baking sheets. Brush each pumpkin lightly with butter then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Spoon about 2 Tablespoons of pumpkin pie filling around center of pumpkins leaving 1/4 inch border around edges.

3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until puff pastry is golden brown on the edges and pumpkin pie is cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to cooling rack. Serve room temperature or chilled. Drizzle with melted chocolate if desired before serving.

    Ok, that is SERIOUSLY one of the cutest things I’ve seen. I’m definitely making this (and yes, I realize I say that about all of your recipes).

  7. 7

    How cute and yummy!!

    Unfortunately, I have yet to find canned pumpkin in my area. I am told that the so called “pumpkin shortage” is a myth, but as long as everyone buys into the theory and stockpiles it as soon as it hits shelves….it’s pretty much a reality.

    So as of yet, no pumpkin for me.

    Sigh….maybe someday soon!!

    Heather says:

    So cute Jenny! Love them! I wish had one of them right now. Yum!
    I made sure to stocked up on pumpkin so these are a must try. I bet these would be good as sweet potato tarts too…that is if you couldn’t get your hands on pumpkin. ๐Ÿ™‚

    They’re so cute!! Apparently, we both have pumpkin on the brain today ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made these over the weekend and they are fabulous!! I only had a smaller pumpkin cookie cutter, so it made a few more than the recipe said, but the more the better!! :0)

    Made these yesterday-FABULOUS!!! But I was so sad to just throw out the extra puff pastry dough…what can you do with the extra?

    margie says:

    I just made these for my apple picking brunch, they went over well. I liked that you could taste the pumpkin and the pastry equally.
    I made two small changes and cut my puff pastry into squares. (I hate waste) and offered whipped cream on the side. My guests loved them! Thanks for the idea!

  72. 72
    Jennifer says:

    I made these last night – couldn’t wait to make my first pumpkin dessert of the season! These were light and delicious – perfect for those who love pumpkin and even those who don’t! I didn’t know what to do with the remainder of the puff pastry (roll it out to use again?) so I just cut the remaining dough into rectangle/squares from the edges and spooned the pumpkin just like for the others. When people want seconds, they don’t care what shape they’re in! ๐Ÿ™‚ So so good! Will definitely make again!

  73. 73
    Celeste says:

    Ok, these turned out fantastically!! Instead of drizzling with chocolate, I dolloped them with homemade whipped cream. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!!
