Made these for a bake sale....easy, stress free and they were a hit!
What you need:
Store bought pie crust ( I used Marie Callender's - it is milk free )
Cookie cutters of your choice
Fresh fruit, fruit preserves or pie filling. ( I prefer jam or preserves...easy ). If planning to use fresh fruit, sugar and honey to sweeten is optional.
What you do:
Thaw pie crust in fridge or at room temperature
Heat oven to 400F
Mold into a ball
Dust surface and hands with flour and roll with a rolling pin to desired thickness ( 1/4 of an inch )
Cut with cookie cutters
Place identical cut out on top and press ends together with hands or a fork
Poke top with a fork or have a desired cut out on top. ( I used a smaller cookie cutter to create effect for top crust... Do this before covering filling with top crust )
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and arrange tarts on top
Bake in oven for 15-20 mins.
