Pumpkin – Sweet Potato Tarts With Nutmeg Whipped Cream

As you all know, I have the biggest weakness for desserts. Now, I’ve heard the idea toyed around with mixing sweet potatoes and pumpkins together…so I decided to do just that. Though, I don’t like cool whip as a traditional topping. I like making my whipped cream, but I like to spicen up my whipped cream to enhance the flavors of what I’m eating. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE traditional home made whipped cream…but this just called for a something with a little bit more oomph. So…I used nutmeg! I can’t say that I was disappointed by at all…because I wasn’t, and I I’m sure you won’t be either! Enjoy.

To get started with, you’re going to need a pie shell crust. Yes, you can absolutely use store bought pie crust. I just prefer in making my own. To find my recipe for my crust, please be sure to visit this other amazing recipe: Mini Apple Dumpling Recipe. After you make the crust recipe, then you may follow onto the recipe for the tart!

Nutmeg Whipped Cream Recipe:

Ingredients:

  1. 1 Cup of Heavy Cream
  2. 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  3. 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients.
  2. You may use a hand mixer or a whisk (I prefer a  whisk, takes longer but filled with more love!)
  3. Whip your mixture until you get super thick peaks. NOT light small ones. I mean big.

For the whipped cream, I actually put mine into a pastry bag with a big tip to add a more decorative touch. If you’re not worried about all the foo-foo stuff, then just spoon this delicious whipped cream on top. The more the better! I can’t wait to cook up some more stuff with you!
