Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Make Ahead
The tart shells can be baked ahead of time. The cranberry mixture can also be prepared ahead of time. Store the cooled tart shells in tightly covered container at room temperature, and the cooled cranberry mixture in separate covered container in refrigerator up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, prepare the cream cheese mixture as directed; spoon into tart shells. Top with cranberry mixture.
