  • 1 package mini frozen tart shells regular sized tart shells are fine too
  • 1 can cherry pie filling cherry is great for Valentine's Day because it's red, but feel free to use any pie filling.


  1. Holding the tart, press gently inwards to form the top of your heart.

  2. Pinch the tart directly below the indentation on the top to form your heart.

  3. Fill each tart with a few cherries then top up with the pie filling glaze.  Around 1 Tablespoon in total.

  4. (Optional) Roll out some more tarts to act as tops for the tarts.  Be as creative as possible!  Basket weave, inlays, cutouts ... anything you do to the top of a regular pie, you can do on these mini ones.

  5. Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes.
