The tarts can be made up to 2 days in advance. I love make ahead recipes! Especially party/holiday make ahead recipes. I highly suggest doubling the recipe. These didn't last long at our party. I think I ate about 5 of them right out of the oven. ;-)
I am definitely planning on serving these at our Thanksgiving dinner later this month. I like to eat lots of little bites of dessert instead of one big slice of something. I don't like to commit to just one dessert! They also keep with my easy holiday theme - quick and easy! I need everything to be easy to prep and quick and easy clean up with my InSinkErator Evolution Excel Garbage Disposal! Stress free holiday for the win!
Extremely durable and made in America, InSinkErator® is the best-selling brand of garbage disposals in the world. For more information, visit http://south.insinkerator.com/
