We have a "friends Thanksgiving" party to go to tonight. It's a yearly tradition and last year by the time I had gotten off work, everyone was done eating and had moved onto drinking heavily. Nobody even got a chance to eat the desserts I made (a pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies and an apple pie.) This year, since I am 100% self employed, I am closing the shop early to go enjoy an early thanksgiving with friends and not only did I make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and garlic rolls, I also made my invention. Mini Mac & Cheese Tarts.
Easy, peasy mac & cheesy tart recipe.
12 mini uncooked pie shells
1 box of mac & cheese (I got Target brand shells & white cheddar cheese)
1 package of ritz crackers
This recipe is so easy and southern, you don't really have to "make" anything, just put it together. Pre-bake your pie shells, and set them aside. Make mac & cheese with a little extra milk/butter so that it is extra creamy. Some of this will bake off in the oven. Put a spoonful of mac & cheese in each pie shell, top with crushed ritz crackers and bake for about 5 minutes.
