  1. OH my word, you are such a temptress! These look amazing. I usually steer clear of mini tarts because it seems too much work to make all those little crusts, but I may have to try some of these. They look terrific, but that may be in part because I am fasting today. Thanks, Paula! Happy Easter to you as well.

    1. Becky, You made me laugh. Fasting would make a stale candy bar look good! Those little crusts are a bit tricky for novices but if you have made a pie crust before, they are a cinch. As with most things, a little practice makes perfect. I always recommend people give these an experimental run before the big day. You’ll be able to make those little crusts in a flash before you know it and they’ll taste SO-O-O much better than the store-bought crusts.

  2. Hi Paula,
    I happened to buy mini tart shells and am wondering whether you have a recipe for mini cheese tarts especially how to bake the pre baked mini tart.
