I knew when I saw this recipe I would have to make them, and they would be wonderful. I did and they were! I used 2 mini-muffin tins and got 24 tiny tarts shells. I had leftover shortbread dough so I wrapped it around cherries for a second treat from the same recipe (made a dozen). Because my shells were so little, I decided to half the filling recipe which worked great. This was a really great addition to my Christmas baking, thanks for posting!
