Mini Cranberry and Pecan Tarts Recipe

16 servings, ready in 25 minutes

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Place frozen tart shells on baking sheet.

Place SPLENDA® Granulated, cranberries, orange juice, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and orange zest in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer gently until mixture has caramelized and thickened and skin on cranberries begin to split, about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Gently mash cranberries with potato masher. Stir in pecans.

Divide cranberry mixture equally among tart shells. Bake until cranberry mixture is bubbly and tart shells are lightly golden, about 23-25 minutes. Remove tarts to rack and cool completely.

Store tarts in airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3-4 weeks.
