How to cook deliciously - Bite-Sized Fruit Tarts

1 . Stage

Combine butter and cream cheese for crust in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Gradually stir in flour and salt until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.

2 . Stage

Remove dough from the refrigerator and place on a floured surface. Divide dough evenly into 24 pieces; shape each piece into a ball.

3 . Stage

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.

4 . Stage

While the oven is preheating, press dough onto the bottoms and up the sides of the greased muffin cups. Place the pan on a cookie sheet and set aside.

5 . Stage

Combine milk, cream, and salt for filling in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to bubble around the edges of the pan and wisps of steam are visible, about 3 minutes.

6 . Stage

Stir sugar and egg together in a bowl. Pour 1/4 of the hot milk mixture into the bowl and stir until well combined. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan and continue to cook and stir until mixture is bubbling and has thickened slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each muffin cup.

7 . Stage

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Lower the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until filling is set, about 15 more minutes. Remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove tarts from the pan and place directly on the wire rack; let cool for 20 minutes.

8 . Stage

Place 1 teaspoon raspberry preserves on top of 8 tarts, then top each with a raspberry. Make remaining tarts by topping 8 with blueberry preserves and blueberries, and the remaining 8 with pineapple preserves and banana slices. Serve at room temperature.
