A new year is on its way and one of my favorite things about New Year’s is food. There are no real “holiday requirements” besides watching the Mummer’s Parade. There is, however, food and lots of it. I love making food (DUH, right?), and appetizers star our annual New Year’s Eve party. This year I am making these yummy Pumpkin White Chocolate Tarts.
I am not a huge fan of white chocolate but I knew when it came to pumpkin, white chocolate would be just perfect. I was right. The Pumpkin White Chocolate filling for these tarts almost didn’t make it into the crust. I went through about 4 spoons because I kept tasting it and, of course, double dipping is off limits. The pumpkin and white chocolate filling is light and mousse like, perfectly pairing with the buttery flaky sweet crust.
You can make these with the crust recipe included, use pre-made tarts, or serve alone for a gluten-free dessert. Rather than mixing the pumpkin and cream together you could layer the two for a different look. Whatever you do, make sure you ring in the New Year with this delicious Pumpkin White Chocolate Tart.
