Bite size cranberry tarts! Press pastry into mini muffin cups, then fill with fresh cranberries and a glistening, sweet topping.
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine gluten-free flour blend, 3/4 cup butter and cream cheese in bowl. Beat at medium speed until dough forms a ball.
Divide dough into 36 equal pieces. Place 1 piece of dough into each ungreased mini muffin pan cup. Press dough evenly onto bottom and up sides of cup.
Combine sugar, pecans, egg, 1/4 cup butter and vanilla in bowl. Place 4 or 5 cranberry halves in each pastry-lined cup. Spoon 2 teaspoons sugar and pecan mixture over cranberries.
Bake 22-25 minutes or until golden brown. Loosen tarts from pan while hot by running knife around inside of rim. Cool completely. Remove from pans.
Combine powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency in bowl; mix well. Drizzle over cooled tarts.
*Substitute frozen cranberries, thawed, drained, cut in half.

An amazing recipe!! I brought these to a party and they cleared the dish. I had to grab some quick for my GF kids. A lovely use of fresh cranberries, it adds color and has a nice balance with the sweetness of the cookie. Your guests will never know these are gluten free! The only downside is you can only make these while cranberries are in season. I'll have to give them a try with another fruit or see if I can get my hands on some frozen cranberries.
the crust is short, the filling is easy to prepare and the tartness of the cranberries with the sweetness of the pecan pie filling is just right. i found the glaze to be a little too sweet, even though i did not use all of it.
I have celiacs disease and my 11 year old daughter made these very yummy and very tasty gluten free treats for Thanksgiving! Excellent! She used dried cranberries.
