Soooooo Good

The word of the day is tart! One of my favorites for the Thanksgiving season: pumpkin tarts. Usually I just buy a small back in the store, but I’m wondering if I could manage a copycat recipe. Specifically one that would be good for those on Weight Watchers or needing to watch their sugar intake.

Weight Watchers Pumpkin Pie Tarts tart

Prep time:  10 mins
Cook time:  17 mins
Total time:  27 mins
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1 Can 100% Pumpkin Puree
  • ½ Cup Monk Fruit In The Raw (a sweetener for baking)*
  • ¾ Cup Skim Milk
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Pie Crusts
 Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In large bowl mix together all ingredients except for pie crust until well blended. Set aside.
  3. Using small round cookie cutter, cut circles of pie crust out for each tart.
  4. Place crust into mini muffin pan or tart pan and press down to create shell.
  5. Fill each crust with 1-1 ½ Tablespoons pumpkin puree
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until pumpkin puree is set and crust is golden.
  7. Chill and serve alone, with a sprinkling of crushed pecans or a dollop of whipped cream or sugar-free cool whip.
  8. Each tart is 1 Weight Watchers Point.

*I wonder if Torani sugar-free syrup would work just as well. I recently purchase the sugar-free brown sugar cinnamon flavor for a family member. I might give that a try with this recipe. Just remember with Torani syrup, a little goes a long way. Torani also has a sugar-free pumpkin pie flavor. I’ll update you on how it turns out…that is, when I get around to making them!
