Expert Tips

Don’t have mini tart pans? Turn these into one-bite tarts by cutting the pie crust into 2-inch rounds and pressing them into mini muffin cups sprayed with baking spray with flour. Fill with pumpkin mixture and bake 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve these pretty tarts for brunch as you would a quiche, or make them part of your holiday appetizer spread!
