How to Make It

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Gradually add flour until well mixed. Form into a ball and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Remove from fridge. Roll into 2-inch balls and place in 24-cup miniature muffin tin. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. or 325 F. for a dark pan. Use fingers to smash balls into tart shell shape. Fill shells with approximately 2 cups of filling, as desired. Depending on filling, filled shells are baked from 15 to 25 minutes.

Unfilled shells can be baked for 5 to 10 minutes.
