Ingredients

1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
3
oz unsweetened baking chocolate, cut into pieces
1
cup butter, softened (do not use margarine)
1
cup sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
4
pasteurized eggs* or 1 cup fat-free egg product
  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Remove crusts from pouches; unroll on work surface. Pat or roll each crust into 11 1/2-inch circle. With 3 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 8 rounds from each crust; discard scraps. Fit rounds into 16 ungreased regular-size muffin cups, pressing in gently; prick sides and bottom with fork.
  • 2 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from muffin cups to wire rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat; cool. In small bowl, beat butter with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in cooled chocolate and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on high speed 2 minutes after each addition; beat until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  • 4 Fill tart shells with chocolate mixture. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator.
