Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fit a medium pot with a steamer insert, and fill with water to just below the insert. Bring to a boil. Add squashes to insert; steam until soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk of dough to a large rectangle, about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet, and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Repeat with remaining disk.

  • Cut dough into twelve 5-inch rounds. Fit a round into each 4 1/2-inch tart shell, pressing into corners; trim flush with top edge. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Line each shell with parchment paper, and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Freeze 10 minutes.

  • Bake tart shells 10 minutes. Remove weights and parchment. Return to oven; bake 5 to 10 minutes more. Transfer to wire racks; let cool completely.

  • Scoop out flesh of squashes into a food processor, and process until pureed (you should have 1 1/2 cups puree). Transfer to a large bowl. Add all other ingredients, and whisk until combined.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Set tart shells on a rimmed baking sheet. Divide filling among shells. Bake until all but centers are set, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely.
