Pumpkin chiffon tart —Oh Sweet Day!

What You'll Need
  • Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Filling
  • 1/2 tablespoon unflavoured gelatin powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Topping
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 7-inch springform pan.
  2. To prepare crust, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl. Mix until a moist yet crumbly mixture forms. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. To prepare filling, sprinkle gelatin powder in water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Microwave 10 to 20 seconds on high until mixture is liquidy and gelatin dissolves. Let cool slightly.
  5. In a food processor, mix pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and salt until completely smooth.
  6. Transfer pumpkin mixture to a bowl with gelatin mixture and heavy cream. Stir to combine.
  7. In a bowl of a standing mixer with a whisk attachment, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  8. Fold meringue in the pumpkin mixture, half at a time, until just incorporated.
  9. Pour batter into the cool crust and smooth the top.
  10. Refrigerate the tart until set, at least 3 hours, or preferably overnight.
  11. Before serving, whip up the remaining heavy cream and sugar until firm. Top the tart with the whipped cream and nuts.
