Cool: 2 Hours


  • Cream Cheese-Pecan Pastry
  • 1 (16-ounce) can sweet potatoes, drained, or 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half or whipping cream
  • Garnish: sweetened whipped cream


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Roll pastry between 2 sheets of lightly floured plastic wrap into a 12-inch circle. Fit into an 11-inch shallow, metal, removable bottom tart pan, trimming excess pastry; chill.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, beat sweet potatoes with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Beat in sweetened condensed milk and next 6 ingredients. Beat in eggs and half-and-half. Pour mixture into chilled crust.
  3. 3. Place tart on a baking sheet; bake 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 325°; bake 10 more minutes or until center is set. Let tart cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish, if desired.
  4. *Note: You can prepare the tart in a 9-inch-deep pie plate, omitting about 1/2 cup filling.
