Pumpkin Tart

Well the tart was finally made. It was more cheesecake than tart, in my humble opinion. Raven liked it, she is our cheesecake expert. It looks very pretty and would be great for Thanksgiving or Halloween. Speaking of Halloween, we are having a huge party this year. Stay tuned for those recipes. First here is the Pumpkin Tart recipe.

Pumpkin Tart
1-cup walnuts
1-sleeve graham crackers
1 t cinnamon
½ cup melted butter

3, 8-ounce cream cheese packages
1-cup sugar
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup of canned pumpkin
1 t cinnamon

Put walnuts and cracker crumbs into food processor and spin until finely chopped and smooth, add melted butter and sugar stir until well blended. Press into tart pan.

Mix cream cheese, sugar, eggs, pumpkin and cinnamon. Blend until smooth. Pour into tart pan.
Bake at 350’ for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool for 1 hour. Best if chilled overnight.
