I might have gotten a little carried away with the leaves, but I just love them! Seriously, how adorable is this pumpkin tart? I’ve owned these leaf punches for a few years. Initially, I created a tiny heart design. I’ve always wanted to cover an entire pie with them though. It is time consuming but well worth it!
1 15oz can Libby’s Pure Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Oatly Oat Milk
2 Egg Whites
4 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
3 Pillsbury Pie Crust (2 crusts for leaves, 1 for tart bottom)
1 Egg White + Splash of Water, for Egg Wash
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pie crust onto floured cutting board. Using the leaf pie punches, cut out 55 leafs. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Turn tart pan upside down on parchment paper and trace outside edge with a marker. Place second sheet of parchment on top, you should be able to visualize the circle through this piece of parchment. Lay leaf cut outs, overlapping, around the edge of the circle. Next, lay leaf cut outs in heart shape in center of the circle. Add additional leaf cut outs underneath heart shape to fill in any unused space. Make sure all leaves are overlapping. Gently paint leaves with egg wash. Carefully remove parchment paper with marking. Bake this leaf topper separately for 45 minutes or until leaf cutouts are slightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
While the leaf topper is baking, prepare tart pan and pumpkin mix. Spray 9 1/2 inch tart pan with removable bottom evenly with cooking spray. Place dough over tart pan & press into bottom & sides. Using a knife, cut the excess dough away from the top of the tart pan. Place in refrigerator.
In a large bowl, combine salt and cinnamon. Stir in pumpkin, oat milk, maple syrup and egg whites until combined well. Pour into tart shell. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes.
Refrigerate entire pan, outer ring and bottom, and until ready to serve. When ready to serve, remove pans outer ring and place on serving tray. Gently lay leaf topper onto tart. Prepare yourself for oohs and ahhs. This one is a beauty!
