VALENTINE’S DAY DESSERT: CHERRY CREAM PIE MINI TARTS

valentine's day dessert recipe // cherry cream pie mini tarts

as a valentine to our little cupcakes, we are sharing with you the the most precious valentine’s day dessert recipe we ever have tried. these little cherry cream pie tarts look fancy without much effort, and also happen to taste so good that we can’t be left alone in the house with them.

PASTRY SHELLS

  • 4oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar

mix all ingredients with pastry blender or fork. roll into 1″ balls and press into no stick muffin tin. bake at 350° for 5-7 minutes

FILLING

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2-3 drops red food coloring
  • cherry pie filling

beat at high speed 4-5 minutes or until peaks form. spoon into cooled pastry shells, creating wells in the filling with the back of your spoon. top with cherry pie filling (we could tell you to make this part from scratch but let’s be real, we worship at the church of comstock. no judgement here).
