  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place tart shells on a baking tray.
  2. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl until creamy; beat in eggs, cream, and vanilla extract until combined. Fill tart shells 2/3 full with butter mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until pastry is lightly golden, about 18 minutes; remove to cool on a wire rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If using homemade pastry, roll pastry out 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface; cut into circles with a round biscuit cutter. Press rounds into bottom and up the sides of wells of a mini tart pan for shells.
