Vegan Vanilla Crème Tartlets


Tags: Comfort Food, Dairy Free, Pies, Plant-Based, Vegan, Vegetarian, Cream



Chocolate Tart Crust

  • ¾ cup all purpose flour, plus more for rolling out
  • ½ cup powdered cane sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup cold vegan butter, cut into cubes
  • 2-4 Tbsp non-dairy milk

Vanilla Pudding

  • ½ cup granulated cane sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup food grade cocoa butter, chopped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Chopped fruit



  1. Whisk together flour, powdered cane sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. With a pastry blender or fork, cut in vegan butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal, with some pea sized pieces. Stir the non-dairy milk into the flour mixture 1 Tbsp at a time until dough gathers into a shaggy ball. We used about 4 Tbsp, but it will vary. 
  2. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and form into a thick disk with smooth edges (this will make it easier to roll out). Refrigerate at least 1 hour, but dough will keep several days in the fridge.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin or mini tart pan with cooking spray or neutral oil. Roll out the chilled dough to an 11-inch circle, or about 1/8-inch thick. Cut out circles with a 3-inch cookie cutter. Press crusts into the prepared pan. Prick all over with a fork, including the sides, to prevent puffing. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.
  4. Whisk together cane sugar, cornstarch, and kosher salt in a medium saucepan. Stir in coconut milk and non-dairy milk. Turn up the heat to medium high.
  5. Whisking constantly, bring the mixture to a low boil. Turn down heat to medium, and continue cooking and stirring until very thick, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in cocoa butter and vanilla, continue stirring until cocoa butter is completely melted.
  6. Spoon the pudding mixture into the pre baked tart crusts with a spatula. Top with fresh chopped fruit. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Makes about 2 dozen mini tarts
