Baking a Moment
  • 2 1/4cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/3cup Sucanat or coconut sugar
  • 3/4teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4cup unsalted butter
  • 1cup pumpkin pureeabout half of a 15-ounce can
  • 1/2cup Sucanat or coconut sugar
  • 1teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2large eggs
  • 3/4cup heavy cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4cup pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup Sucanat and ¾ teaspoon salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Press and knead mixture with your hands until it forms a ball. Divide dough into six equal portions and press each portion into the bottom and up the sides of 4½-inch mini tart pan. Place mini tart shells on a baking sheet.
  2. To make the filling, in a medium bowl combine pumpkin, ½ cup Sucanat, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and ¼ teaspoon salt. Add the eggs and stir until incorporated. Whisk in the cream. Divide filling among tarts, fill each tart shell to just below the rim. Bake tarts for 30 minutes, or until the edges of the tarts are golden and the filling is set. Remove tarts from oven and set on a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, place egg whites and pinch of salt. Whip on medium-high speed until mixture holds soft peaks. With the mixer still running, carefully pour in maple syrup in a slow, thin stream. Continue to whip until meringue holds stiff peaks. Divide meringue evenly among cooled tarts, pulling up with a spoon to create peaks. Toast meringue with a kitchen torch or in a 400˚ oven for about 8–10 minutes.
