Apple Butter Tarts

Here is another recipe I am thinking about using for our November tea: No-Bake Apple Butter Tarts. The original idea came from Tea Time Magazine's January/February 2007 issue.

No-Bake Apple Butter Tarts:

1/2 cup apple butter
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temp.
1 package mini tart shells, prebaked
toasted chopped pecans (optional)
cinnamon graham crackers or ginger snaps, crushed (optional)

In a medium sized bowl, blend the softened cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the apple butter until the mixture is smooth. Fill the baked tart shells with the mixture and top each mini tart with 1 teaspoon of the plain apple butter. Sprinkle with toasted pecans, if desired, or cinnamon graham cracker or ginger snap crumbs. Refrigerate until serving. Makes 24 mini tarts.

It sounds easy and tasty!

I found a recipe similar to this and then lost it. I wanted to use it last week. :-( Thanks for sharing! I will keep it in mind for the fund raiser tea next fall!

Glad I could help!

Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And, while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
