It was a Quintessential Fall in Vermont

dried flowers were adorable!

Mini Pumpkin Tarts

1/4 c flour
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c finely chopped pecans
2 T butter, soft

3/4 c butter, soft
2 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, soft
1 1/2 c flour
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 c canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 t pumpkin pie spice
Whipped cream, if desired
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine all topping ingredients in small bowl; mix with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine 3/4 cup butter and cream cheese in medium bowl; beat until well mixed. Add flour; continue beating until dough forms. Divide dough into 36 pieces; place 1 piece into each ungreased mini muffin pan cup. Press dough onto bottom and up sides of cups.
Combine all filling ingredients in large bowl; beat with wire whisk until smooth. Pour about 1 tablespoon filling into each unbaked tart shell; sprinkle each with about 1 teaspoon topping.
Bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool 5 minutes in pans; run small sharp knife around inside edge of cups to loosen tarts. Remove to wire cooling rack.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
