"These are the product of early morning experimentation modifying an old butter tart recipe that I've been using for years. They are a combination of sweet and tart, look beautiful, and disappear very quickly!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped dried cranberries
orange, zested and juiced
brandy, or to taste
15 (2 inch)
sweetened pastry tart shells
These were delicious. I took them to a holiday party and got raves. At 19 minutes baking time, they were just the slightest bit runny still in the center.
You can't eat just one, SO good... I doubled the brandy, and used the zest and juice of a whole orange. As another reviewer suggested I heated the dried chopped cranberries in the OJ, zest and brandy and let them sit for about 30 minutes while I rolled out the pastry and cut to fit in the bottoms of a muffin sheet. The cranberries absorbed the liquid by the time I added the rest of the ingredients. As well I used frozen cranberries on the top, not fresh as I had them in the freezer.... Not a really strong flavour when you first bite into one, but by the time you are finished, you just want another!
Turns out great! But instead of using brandy i boiled the cranberries in fresh squeezed orange juice to make a more concentrated cranberry flavor and still add the half of orange juice to the mix. It was amazing defiantly using at my retreat center for the women to enjoy!
