Cook's Tips: Butter will provide the best flavor when making these rich, miniature tarts.
You'll want to be sure to lightly flour the Mini-Tart Shaper before forming each shell to prevent the dough from sticking.
The Flour/Sugar Shaker is ideal for sprinkling powdered sugar over baked goods for a pretty finishing touch.
To store tarts, cool completely, then place in a tightly covered container. For longer storage, freeze up to 1 month. To thaw, let the tarts stand at room temperature. You may want to sprinkle the tarts with additional powdered sugar before serving.
