Butternut Squash Tartlets

Butternut squash nudges out pumpkin in these little loves.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Olivia's Organics Butternut Squash - roasted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 package Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Cut the squash into 1 inch cubes, toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast on a sheet pan for 30 minutes until tender, turning once. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Decrease oven temp to 350 degrees F.
  • Add the cooled squash and next 7 ingredients to a blender and lightly purée (the 1 tbsp of flour will help thicken the puree).
  • Roll out both pie crusts and cut out 2 inch circles. (A jar cover dipped in flour works great).
  • Lightly spray a mini muffin pan and press a cut circle into each cup. Fill each cup with the butternut squash mixture and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the crust begins to brown.
  • Top tarts with chopped nuts and cool. Recipe yields 20 to 24 mini tarts.
