Some people love Christmas because of the gifts. Others, its the decorations. For me, it is the food! I did my Christmas Tarts to be ready for company.
I made my favourite Tenderflake Pastry recipe. I used some of it to line 16 tart tins.
I filled 8 with Green Tomato Mincemeat I had canned this fall. For the other 8, I used the Bernardin Peach Pie Filling I had canned. For the peach pie filling, I needed to add 25 ml (2 tablespoons) cornstarch for each 500 ml (2 cups) of filling used.
You could use commercial fillings, I guess. If you must.
I cut covers for each tart from the dough and cooked the tarts at 450 F for 10 minutes. I reduced the heat to 225 and cooked for 25 more minutes.
I got incredibly flaky tarts with great fillings I had made and canned. Not only do they taste great, I am proud of them!

I love how rustic the tarts look. I’ll take one of each. hahaha Your guest are very fortunate!
All guests are welcome to share food with us at Christmas! Thanks for the kind words.
