Mini Tarts

This is an old 9th ward recipe that I've had for ages. You can make small little tarts or one big one. The original recipe called for blueberry pie filling for the topping, which is also very good. Here I just used fresh fruit.



CRUST:

1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. flour
2 cubes butter
1 egg
1 egg yolk

Mix the powdered sugar and flour together. Add the butter and mix until crumbly. Lightly beat the egg and egg yolk. Add to flour mixture and mix until it forms a ball. Press dough into small tart shells and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool. (If you use one large tart shell, you will need to cook it longer - until it is nicely browned).

FILLING:

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. cool whip
1 cup powdered sugar

Beat the cream cheese and powered sugar until creamy. Beat in the cool whip. Fill tart shells by putting filling mixture in a sturdy Ziploc baggie and cut off the corner. Pipe the filling in to the tart shells. Top with fresh chopped fruit or canned pie filling.
