Pumpkin Tart

This is one of my holiday favorites and graces our dinner table many times during the Fall and Winter months, and especially for Thanksgiving dinner. It's a family tradition to go pumpkin picking early in October, and I always manage to come home with some extra sugar pumpkins to roast. This time my sister-in-law surprised me by stuffing a bunch of them in my trunk. Do you think she wants some pie? 😋

Thanksgiving is usually a very busy time so I will indicate what steps can be done ahead of time. You can even make and finish this the day before you plan to serve it - it's just as delicious the next day. In addition, the way I prepare the tart here, by blind-baking the tart shell and protecting it with a layer of egg white, ensures that you will get a crisp cookie crust to go with the creamy custard.


Hi! I'm Adriana.

I built this site for the curious home baker. I'm a huge science + tech nerd; you'll feel right at home if you like exploring and experimenting in the kitchen too.

Here you can build cakes with my Cakeculator and find recipes to accompany the videos from YouTube, Tiktok, and Instagram.

I have lots of things to share... I hope you have fun around here!
