Tart Shell

  1. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in  a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. 
  3. Add the egg yolk, and stir until the dough gathers itself into a ball and pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/8-inch.
  5. Press the dough gently into the tart pan(s), trimming away any excess.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 170 degrees. 

Pumpkin Filling

  1. Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, spices and salt in medium bowl until smooth. For into crust. Bake for 20 minutes at 170 degrees. 

There you have it, a thanksgiving favourite. Its so incredibly easy and then Tara's personal favorite treat.
