 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------CHEESE TART SHELLS-----------------------------
  • 1/2 c Vegetable Shortening
  • 5 oz American Cheese Spread;1 Jar
  • 1 1/2 c Unbleached Flour


2 Navel Oranges;Peel & Section
8 1/4 oz Pineapple; Crushed, 1 Cn
1/4 c Sugar
5 ts Cornstarch
1/8 ts Salt
1/2 c Orange Juice
1 tb Lemon Juice
3/4 c Cheddar; Sharp, Shredded


Combine the shortening and cheese spread in a medium bowl. Cut flour into
the cheese mixture with two knives until well blended. Shape into a roll
1 1/4-inch in diameter and 12 inches long. Wrap completely in waxed paper
or plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or longer. Preheat oven to 375
degrees F. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and unwrap. Slice
1/8-inch thick. Using 12 (2 3/4-inch) muffin cups or 3-inch tart pans,
place 1 slice of dough in the bottom of each. Overlap 5 slices around the
outside of each. Gently press together. Pierce the bottoms and sides
with a fork. Bake 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven until lightly
browned. Cool in the pans on a rack and gently remove the shells when
cold to the touch.


Cut each orange section into 3 pieces and set aside. Drain the pineapple,
reserving the syrup. Combine the pineapple syrup, orange juice, and lemon
juice in a saucepan. Stir in the rest of the ingredients except the
cheddar cheese, and cook, stirring gently, over medium heat until the
mixture thickens and bubbles. Stir in the orange pieces and pineapple.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Spoon the chilled filling into the baked
tart shells and sprinkle each tart with about 1 Tbls of the cheddar
cheese. Refrigerate until serving time.
