Cherry Tart-lets

If you're looking for an eazy-peazy, FAST and fancy lil dessert, look no further!!

I had some of these left over from another recipe and didn't want them to go to waste SO I was trying to think of a creative inventive way to use them....what's better than DESSERT?? (remember there are 2 "s" 's in dessert cuz you always want more!). I actually had the egg roll wraps which are larger, so I cut them into 4. First you need to place your wrap in a mini-muffin pan (after your oven is already pre-heated to 375) and I find it's easiest to make it into a lil pouch prior to placing in pan (that way it won't tear when you press it in)
Bake until the edges are golden brown (approx 5-7 minutes). Take out of oven and put a teaspoon of your favorite jam or jelly (I used a reduced sugar cherry jam that had actual cherries in it). Place back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes and VIOLA!!!

You have your own portable dessert cup! Now there are a few variations on this....after cooled add a teaspoon of peanut butter for the fanciest lil pb&j evah! OR add some chocolate shavings, chocolate sauce.....etc.
Sweets for my sweets! Lemme know of ya try this recipe and what YOU used!
ooooohhhh, is that a hint of Valentine's Decor I see? You BETCHA!! Stay tuned for more!

Ah, like sausage cups but dessert-y! Clever! I'm going to have to try these with different fillings............I'm thinking maybe banana and chocolate or caramel........
