    Calee's Note:

    Is it a cookie or is it a tart? My favorite is lemon. I have made these tarts filled with Bailey's Chocolate Mousse. Also banana cream or coconut pie filling will work nicely to.

      Simply delicious! I made these for my cookie baskets and they were a huge hit. I had been waiting to figure out what to do with these little tart pans that I picked up at a dollar store and this was a perfect opportunity. The dough was simple to make and formed easily in to the pans. I did press the dough a little too high in the first know that the dough expands unlike some pastry shells. The dough is delicate tasting but not delicate to handle..mine slipped out of the tins with little breakage. I think it tastes like a sugar cookie...a GOOD sugar cookie which I think is rare. I will be using the dough recipe for other things in the future. I usually use a recipe just like this for the curd so I know this is good but I admit my impatience got the best of me this time and I boiled the first batch and ruined it. I found a recipe that makes it a little easier and used that and the results were wonderful.One hint if you are dusting with powdered this before piping in the curd so it doesn't ruin the smooth surface of the curd. Thanks so much for this great dessert!

      These were excellent! I loved the taste of the pastry and had no problems with crumbling or getting them out of the pan. I used Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating by Kittencalskitchen on this site (works better than Pam). I had another advantage which was a Pastry Shaper, a wooden device shaped like a mini muffin on one end so all I had to do was put a round ball of dough in each mini muffin tin and press the pastry shaper into the dough to make perfectly shaped tarts. I did not need to use the condensed milk and I completely forgot about the icing sugar in the end.
