Tart Shells


½ c butter
½ c Crisco
1 c sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 c flour

Cream butter, Crisco, and sugar.  Add the egg, extract and flour and cream to a nice soft dough.  Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and then press into a tart shell.
Bake in a 375 oven for 8-10 minutes
Roll into walnut size 375 8-10 minutes

Haylee’s Note:
This is the ultimate “girl food.” It is dainty, it is beautiful, and it is DELICIOUS!  There are so many ways you can fill these tarts.  My favorite it to fill the shell with a little dark chocolate, then fill it with vanilla pudding with a little extra almond extract (but I think that grand marnier would be AMAZING in this…if you use cooked pudding for all the Mormons out there), then top with fresh berries and mint!  Oh man!  SOO YUMMY!!
