- 1/2 tsp EDEN Sea Salt
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp EDEN Kuzu Root Starch, dissolved in 1/4 cup Edensoy or water

- To prepare the filling, soak agar flakes in EDENSOY for 20 minutes. Pour into a medium size pot, add the maple syrup and bring almost to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until the agar melts, about 20 minutes.
- Turn off the flame, pour EDENSOY mixture into a blender and pulse several seconds to further dissolve the agar. Pour back into the pot.
- Add the pumpkin, salt, spices, vanilla and diluted kuzu.
- Stir to mix well, bring almost to a boil and remove from the flame.
- To prepare the tart crust, mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
- Pulse the oil and EDENSOY in the blender several seconds or whisk in a bowl to blend thoroughly.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mix and form into a ball of dough.
- Preheat the oven to 350°.
- Pull pieces off the ball and roll the dough into several 1 to 1 1/2 inch round balls. Place the balls in the sections of a lightly oiled mini muffin tin or tart pan.
- Using a pestle, press the center of a ball of dough and roll from side to side to shape the dough into the sections.
- Repeat until all tart shells are shaped. Do not make them too thick or too thin.
- Spoon the pumpkin filling into each tart shell.
- Garnish with nuts and bake about 25 minutes or until the crust is golden.
- Allow to cool so that the filling sets before serving.
