Flaky Tartlet Shells

If you are making several batches of shells, you can stack up to three unrolled piecrusts on top of each other and cut dough circles all at once. A tart tamper or drink muddler makes fast work of pressing dough into pans. (Both are available at kitchenware stores.)


This recipe goes with Dulce de Leche Tartlets, Pear-Havarti Bites, Raspberry Cream Tartlets, Ginger-Brie Bites, Spicy-Sweet Goat Cheese Bites, Chocolate-Hazelnut Tartlets

Yield: Makes 24 tartlet shells
