No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Tarts

Happy 2nd day of Autumn!

Now that Fall has officially begun, it’s time to start whipping up some of my favorite Autumn recipes.

One of my very favorite Fall desserts, is pumpkin pie. The combination of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and other spices, baked in a flaky crust and served with a dollop of whipped cream, is, in my opinion, the perfect dessert for this time of year.

However, sometimes I have a craving for pumpkin pie, but I don’t necessarily have the time, or patience, to make a whole pie. That’s where this quick and easy No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Tart recipe comes in handy. I only need to combine four ingredients, spoon them into pre-baked shells, and in approximately 30 minutes, I have delicious, mini pumpkin tarts.

I use a 3.4 ounce package of cheesecake flavor pudding and pie filling mix, but you could also use vanilla, or whichever flavor you desire.

~Enjoy~

  1. What a wonderful recipe for this time of year! And – I just learned something from you . . . I didn’t know there was cheesecake instant pudding mix. Thanks for the great recipe, and the heads up on the pudding mix.

    • It’s one of my favorite flavors, Mom! You’ll have to look for it the next time you’re in a “big city” store. :)

  2. This recipe also works with Philadelphia’s cheesecake filling instead of the jello. If you like the properties of the jello, you can add unflavored gelatin to the cheesecake filling. I use one tub of cheesecake filling, one can of “easy” pumpkin, and Athens fillo shells. :-)
