Mini Pumpkin Tarts
Darling tartlets are a perfect size after a heavy holiday meal. Honey and a touch of spice provide just enough sweetness to the pumpkin.
Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray 24 regular muffin cups with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix flour and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut shortening into flour mixture until texture is crumbly. Sprinkle 6 tablespoons almondmilk over flour mixture and mix with fork until mixture comes together in a ball, adding more of the almondmilk as necessary. Gather into 2 balls; slightly flatten to discs. Cover and refrigerate while making filling.
In medium bowl, beat eggs with wire whisk until blended. Add all remaining filling ingredients. Whisk until smooth and well mixed.
On well-floured work surface, pat out one of the discs of dough. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap. With rolling pin, roll into thin sheet, about ⅛” thick. With 3” cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Piece dough scraps together if necessary to cut enough rounds. Fit into 12 muffin cups, patting into bottom and about half way up sides of cups. Repeat with remaining dough and muffin cups.
Spoon filling evenly into dough shells, about a rounded tablespoon per shell. Bake 15 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean, rotating pans if baking more than one at a time. Cool in pans 15 minutes.
