Dulce de Leche Tartlets

Prep time 25 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 appetizer servings
Look for canned dulce de leche in the canned milk aisle. You can make these up to four hours ahead of time. Just chill until ready to serve.


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup canned dulce de leche
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 24 Flaky Tartlet Shells
  • Garnishes: sweetened whipped cream, ground cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Beat cream cheese, dulce de leche, 2 Tbsp. cream, and 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon at medium speed with an electric mixer until combined. Beat at high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy, stopping to scrape down sides. Spoon cream cheese mixture into a 1-qt. heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag (do not seal). Snip 1 corner of bag to make a small hole. Pipe cream cheese mixture evenly into Flaky Tartlet Shells. Top each with sweetened whipped cream and a pinch of ground cinnamon.
