15 tartlets

You won't even have to take up oven space during your next holiday event with these easy no-bake tarlets. Rich pumpkin and cream cheese combines with a hint of pumpkin spice to freeze beautifully in crispy phyllo dough cups. Taking just 20 minutes, these sweet treats give you the chance to worry about the rest of the meal, instead of fretting over dessert. 


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 15 frozen mini phyllo cups
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds, for garnish

How to Make It

  1. Mix together pumpkin, cream cheese, honey, and pumpkin spice until thoroughly combined. Divide mixture evenly amongst phyllo cups. Place into freezer for 15 minutes.
  2. In a cold metal bowl, whip cream to a soft peak. Top each frosty tartlet with a small dollop of cream and roasted pumpkin seeds.
