Thinly sliced buttered bread takes the place of tart shells, although I have only made this recipe using the bread, I imagine that this could be made using small tart shells also maybe just prebake the tart shells slightly prior to filling them --- when purchasing the bread for this purchase the low calorie bread, it is usually the thin sliced and is the perfect thickness for the tarts :)
