Recipe: Pecan Cranberry Tarts

I was meeting my boyfriend's parents this past weekend (EEK!), and since they were making lunch for us, we were asked to bring a dessert. We found this recipe online at, and it was a great hit! The number of tarts you get from the recipe depends on what kind of pastry shells you buy, but this recipe makes plenty of small ones!

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 orange, zested and juiced
1 egg, beaten
15 (2 inch) sweetened pastry tart shells

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix brown sugar, chopped pecans, dried cranberries, butter, orange zest, orange juice, and egg together in a bowl.
3. Arrange tart shells on a baking sheet and spoon pecan-cranberry filling into each shell about 2/3 full.
4. Bake in the preheated oven until tart shells are lightly browned and filling is bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes.
