Mini Pumpkin Tarts
Yields: 15 tarts
1 package mini Phyllo tarts (15 to a package)
3 oz canned pure pumpkin
1/3 frozen whipped topping, thawed (extra for garnish)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (extra for garnish)
1.5 oz of cheesecake-flavor instant pudding mix
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Remove the shells from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the pumpkin, whipped topping, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl, whisking until smooth. Add the pudding mix and whisk until smooth and thick. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the filling into each of the shells (you can also pipe the filling with a pastry bag or a plastic sandwich bag with one corner snipped off), then top the tarts with whipped topping, a sprinkling of the pumpkin pie spice, and a mint leaf, if you like. Makes 15 tarts.
