- 1 pkg frozen mini tart shells
- 1/4 cup pistachios rough chopped
- 1/4 cup craisins rough chopped
- 4 oz Boursin Cranberry and Pepper cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Arrange tart shells on baking sheet.
- Divide the Boursin cheese into 18 little pats. Put a pat of the cheese into the tart shells and top with a little of the chopped nuts and craisins.
- Bake about 18 minutes until pastry is golden brown. Remove the foil from the tarts. Arrange on a serving tray and serve warm.
