I could't begin to tell you how many of these wonderful little tarts I have made over the years for weddings, showers, anniversaries and other special occasions.

I have a wooden tamper that I use to form the cream cheese tart shell with to make production easier. I just roll a ball, place in muffin tin and tamp to form shell.
