Ingredients

1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
2
egg yolks
1/2
cup whipping cream
1
bag (12 oz) white baking chips (2 cups)
18
hard caramel or butterscotch candies, finely crushed (1/2 cup)
3
bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Turn 12-cup muffin pan with regular-size cups upside down. Spray backs of muffin cups with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray.
  • 2 Unroll 1 pie crust on work surface; roll into 12-inch round. Using 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut into 6 (4-inch) rounds. Repeat with second crust.
  • 3 Place dough rounds over backs of muffin cups, pleating dough to fit around cups. Prick dough several times with fork. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes. Carefully remove tart shells from muffin cups; place open sides up on cooling rack.
  • 4 In small bowl, beat egg yolks; set aside. In 2-quart nonstick saucepan, heat cream and baking chips over medium heat, stirring constantly, until chips are melted. Stir about 1 cup of the hot cream mixture into egg yolks until well blended. Pour egg mixture back into saucepan; reduce heat to low. Cook 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  • 5 Place tart shells on cookie sheet. Pour cream mixture into tart shells. Sprinkle each with 1 rounded teaspoon of the candies. Bake about 5 minutes or until candy is melted. Remove tarts from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 30 minutes. Top tarts with bananas; serve warm or cooled. Store covered in refrigerator.
