Mmmmm…. I love mincemeat! So this past week I used my homemade mincemeat in yummy little tarts.
I made a basic pie crust dough, used a cup to cut it into circles and formed the circles into mini pie shells using a muffin pan. (Remember to poke holes in the bottoms so they don’t puff up.)
Then, I made cream cheese layer by mixing together an 8 oz package of cream cheese, half a container of whipped topping, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar, depending on the consistency you want. I put the cream cheese layer in the tart shells first, put mincemeat on top and voila! Mini Mincemeat Tarts! Feel free to put dollop of whipped topping on top! I also made some tarts using blueberry pie filling instead of mincemeat.
This is the same way you can make my favorite mincemeat pie- just add a vanilla pudding layer on top of the mincemeat layer by using half the milk with a vanilla pudding mix and stir in some cinnamon and nutmeg. Easy!
What’s your favorite holiday treat?
