I didn't bake my tart shells long enough. Therefore, when I filled them and let them set for an hour, the bottoms of the tarts turned back into tortillas. So, don't do that. Bake 'em till they're done.They should have been quite dark and crisp, both top and bottom, when done. I could sit down with a spoon and finish off ALL the cream cheese and they were nice to look at.
