  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter and cream cheese. Mix in the flour until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. While the dough chills, make the filling. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts.
  3. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Press the balls into the cups of mini muffin pans so that the dough covers the bottom and sides. Fill each one with a generous teaspoon of the filling.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges of the tarts are lightly browned.

These are sooooo good!!! Made them for a baby shower and everybody LOVED them. Will definately make again.

I formed the pastry into a ball and placed in the refrigerator to chill. For the filling, I finely chopped 1/3 cup of cranberries and 1/3 cup of pecans in my food processor. Since I used unsal...

They seemed quite similar to an English recipe, the Bakewell tart. Quite good, the pastry with cheese is somewhat interesting. The filling is a bit drier than expected. My kids liked them but di...

I doubled the recipe to use an eight ounce package of cream cheese, this yielded 33 tarts that baked in 25 minutes. I used chocolate chips for the nuts because I needed it to be nut free. Next t...

These were very tasty, but I really didn't taste the cranberry. The next time I'd maybe cut back on the amount of nuts and add more cranberries.
