Mini-Tart Yogurt Cups


Spring Time is a fun time for celebrating with family and friends. We always get together for family dinners and some pool time on Easter Sunday (yes, we live in California and Easter starts getting hot and it's perfect for a little dip in the pool). I know these delicious treats would be the perfect addition to our Easter Sunday Dinner.
I started this recipe with some left-over homemade pie dough from another recipe we were making on freezer cooking day; Hamburger Pie, once I had the left over pie dough I knew these would be perfect for making some mini-tart cups, next I just needed to create the filling. The filling is a pretty common filling half yogurt and half cool whip.

They are light and A-MAZ-ING!  


Mini-Tart Yogurt Cups

50/50 Vanilla Yogurt and Cool Whip
Food Coloring
Shredded Coconut
Jelly Beans
6 to 6 Mini-Tart Cups (see recipe below for crust)

Mix together 50/50 vanilla yogurt and cool whip. Add a spoonful of yogurt mixture into each mini-tart cup. Top with shredded coconut and add three jelly beans to the top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust
from my Mother-in-Law Charlotte

2 cups flour
1 cup Butter Flavor Shortening
1/2 cup COLD water
pinch of salt

Mix flour, shortening and salt with a pastry knife (or a fork if you don't have one). Once it's all mixed together then add COLD water and continue mixing. Cut into half and roll out one at a time onto a flour surface. Roll until you get your desired thickness, then use a round cookie cutter, with a scallop edge if you wish. Place each round into a sprayed muffin tin and bake for about 12 to 16 minutes. Cool completely before adding the above toppings.
