Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cup chopped or snipped dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 3 - ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Set aside orange peel. In a small saucepan, bring orange juice to boiling. Add cranberries. Remove from heat; let stand for 10 minutes. Drain cranberries, discarding orange juice.
  2. For crust: In a medium mixing bowl, beat the 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Stir in flour. Divide dough into 24 pieces; shape into balls. Press balls into the bottoms and up the sides of 24 ungreased 2- to 2 1/2-inch fluted tart pans or 1 3/4-inch muffin cups.
  3. For filling: In a small bowl, stir together the egg, brown sugar, cornstarch, the orange peel, the 1 tablespoon melted butter, vanilla and salt until combined. Stir in drained cranberries and pecans. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the filling into dough-lined pans. Set tart pans on a large cookie sheet if using.
  4. Bake in a 325 degrees oven about 30 minutes or until crust is golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully remove tarts from pan by running a knife around edges and lifting out. Let cool.
