Pumpkin Cream Oreo Tarts & a Favor

Pumpkin Tart4 Hey guys! TGIF! Don’t these tarts look so cute and festive? It makes me want to carve pumpkins and go trick-or-treating! I got my bake on and made a TON of pumpkin desserts. Get ready for some seriously tasty treats!

But first-

I’ve been trying to recruit you all to vote for one of my recipes. I entered a recipe into a contest to win a trip to Hawaii. Why? Because {1} I’ve never been to Hawaii {2} I’d like to win a recipe contest and {3} it would make for a GREAT honeymoon! You see, my husband and I never got a honeymoon. We were two crazy kids who fell in love in college and got married…while still going to college. We got married on Thanksgiving break when we had a few days off. Then, we went right back to school. We had good intentions of going on a honeymoon…just later. AND THEN…I miraculously got pregnant. So there went any and all of our plans and funds. Since then, it’s been on the back burner. Like WAY back burner…. Usually I don’t enter recipe contests that require people to vote because I think that is stupid and I’ve tried those before and usually don’t win. However, considering this is a great prize, I thought I would hijack this post {just for a paragraph} and ask my favorite people in the whole world {you!} for a favor. If you’re feeling charitable…please click on this link HERE and “like” my recipe. I would be really grateful and I promise to make you yummy recipes for ever and ever! Thanks for listening! Oh, and I love you! Muchos! :)

Ok, hijacking averted!

As I was saying….aren’t these tarts too cute? These are one of the many many recipes I tested over the last few days that I fell in love with. They are amazing. And decadent. And fancy looking. And super easy! {–>no baking required!!!} And straight up changeintoyourstretchypants delicious. Did I mention they had a beautiful oreo crust? Oh mama.
Pumpkin Tart3  Chocolate + pumpkin = happy tastebuds.

Forreals. Whoever thought of that combination deserves something pretty.

I had these tarts made in 20 minutes flat yesterday. Yes, they really are THAT easy. All you do is grind your oreos with melted butter and press that mixture into your tart pans. Then you whip cream cheese, pumpkin puree and some spices together to create the filling. Spread the filling onto the crust. Whip some cream, top with walnuts and voila! Dessert. If you don’t have these cute little tart pans, then you can make this into a large tart or a regular pie. No big deal.

Hope you all have a great weekend! {Thanks in advance for the votes, too!}

    As for this tart…holy cow. This looks like a great ‘transitional’ item from summer to fall since it’s pumpkiny, but cool in temperature! :)

    • Lauren — September 16th, 2011 @ 9:21 pm

      I never thought of this dessert as transitional, but it makes total sense! Thanks for voting! :)

  29. This might be a bit of a stupid question but I’m new to baking so bear with me here.

    For the oreo cookies, I’m assuming I have to scrape off the oreo filling, right?

      Nope. Grind everything up together!!

  34. Hi Lauren,
    These sound and look amazing!!! I was wondering if this recipe would work as one regular size pie? Have you ever tried making it that way….? Wondering if I would just double the the filling ingredients? I’m thinking about making it for Thanksgiving.
    Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks so much!!!
    Also, congrats on your baby news. Your infertility story touched my heart. I also went through secondary infertility ~ it’s a tough road. I’m so happy to hear that you stayed strong and made it to where you are now!!! ♥

    Reply

    • Lauren — November 9th, 2012 @ 7:40 am

      Yes, I think the recipe should work as just 1 large pie instead of individual tarts.

      Reply

  35. Lauren – do you think these could be made in a muffin top pan? Would they release? Or do you need something with removable sides?

    Reply

    • Lauren — October 21st, 2013 @ 12:54 pm

      They would probably work in a muffin top pan, but I’ve never tried it! You might want to cut out parchment paper circles to line the bottoms to make sure they come out! And, you’d probably yield a few more tarts too. Give it a whirl and let me know how it goes!
