Pumpkin Chai Cheesecake Tartlets are a delightful dessert that combines the warm, comforting flavors of chai with the classic fall taste of pumpkin. These bite-sized tartlets make for a perfect treat at holiday gatherings and are sure to impress your guests. Here's a recipe to help you make these delicious tartlets:
For the Tartlet Crust:
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
For the Chai Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling:
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Harvest Chai tea
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a mini tartlet pan with mini tartlet liners.
In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
Press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each tartlet liner to form the crust.
In another mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth and creamy.
Add the pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla extract, chai spice blend, and salt to the cream cheese mixture. Mix until well combined and smooth.
Fill each tartlet liner with the pumpkin chai cheesecake filling, leaving a small gap at the top as the filling will expand while baking.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes or until the edges are set, and the centers are slightly jiggly.
Allow the tartlets to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once they have cooled, refrigerate the tartlets for a few hours or overnight to set.
Serve the Pumpkin Chai Cheesecake Tartlets with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chai spice on top for an extra burst of flavor.
These Pumpkin Chai Cheesecake Tartlets are a fantastic addition to any holiday gathering or autumn-themed event. The combination of chai and pumpkin is both comforting and delightful, and the bite-sized portions make them perfect for serving at parties. Your guests will indeed be begging for more!
