How to Make Weight Watchers Pumpkin Pie Tarts

Start off by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F.

Next get your muffin cups ready by spraying a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Don’t use a mini muffin pan for this recipe!

Now in a large bowl beat together pumpkin, sugar, milk, egg, pumpkin pie spice, ginger and salt. You can use a stand mixer or a hand-held mixer for this.

Place one wonton wrapper in the bottom of each muffin cup with the corners sticking up.

Lightly coat the wonton wrappers with cooking spray.

Next place a second wonton wrapper in each muffin cup on an angle. This means that each muffin cup will have 8 wonton wrapper corners sticking up.

Now you will evenly divide the pumpkin filling among the muffin cups.

Sprinkle each muffin cup with pecans.

Bake until the wontons are crispy and browned. It usually takes around 13-17 minutes.

It is a good idea to check your pumpkin pie tarts 4-5 minutes into cooking to make sure the wonton wrapper edges aren’t getting too brown or burning.  If they look like they will get too done…you can cover the pan with foil loosely until the filling is set!  🙂

Points for Pumpkin Pie Tarts

The serving size for this recipe is one pumpkin pie tart.  I used the Weight Watchers recipe builder to calculate the points. There are 4 points per tart on the blue, green and purple myWW Plans.

Four points for a dessert is NOT BAD at all!  Remember to always figure your points based on the ingredients you use. Changes in brand can change points.
