Mince Tarts Gone Wild!

I was doing plenty of baking for Christmas - something I loved to do and everyone loved to eat! I decided to try and make mince tarts but hadn't had much experience making pastry. My Mom made the best and tried to teach me - she kept saying 'until it feels right'! Well I thought I would 'cheat' and buy some of those tart shells. I made one batch and they were very difficult to get out of the tin foil that the tart shells came in. So I decided that I would fill the tarts with the filling and take them out of the tin foil - they would be super easy to lift off the cookie sheet - well you can imagine the mess - I had my oven light on and all I could see through the window was a sea of pastry and filling - the shells had flattened out and the mixture was dripping all over my oven - I had also used a cookie sheet with no sides! We didn't have mince tarts for Christmas that year!

Oh NO!!!!!  I need much more detailed directions than that.  I hate it when stuff cooks down into the stove.  Burned food is a horrible smell.  I hope you worked up your nerve to try another time.

Thanks for sharing Lynn.  I've made mince cookies but never attempted to make the tarts.

I sympathize with your problem.  I'm glad I didn't have to clean the oven....hope it was self cleaning.

Thanks for sharing.  Yes, I hope it was a self-cleaning oven.

I never attempted to make mince tarts.
