Cranberry Cream Cheese Tarts


After I made that great pie crust last week and baked up the pumpkin pies, I had some pastry left over.

I did make some leaves and stuff to decorate the pies, however there was still a little dough left so I had some fun.

I rolled out the dough, then pressed them into these little tart pans.

I then grabbed some cream cheese out of the fridge and softened it in the microwave.     Dumped it into a bowl and mixed in some confectioners sugar, and added a teaspoon or so of Grand Marnier.
Then I took the cheese mixture, spooned it into the tart pans

and dolloped some of my Boozy Cranberry Sauce on top.

Recipe:
3 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier

Baked them off until the tops were nicely browned and took them out of the oven.

They were so good.

Really good.

But I had to share them.   The bird wanted a taste and after she’d eaten a nice corner of it, she came back for more.

So this recipe is bird approved.   And if you’re wondering about the bit of alcohol in this, it had cooked off long before she got her beak into the pie.

I’m so going to make some more, but next time I’ll make enough to share with more than the bird.

Here’s the decorated Pumpkin Pies
