Toll House Pie Tarts

Sometimes I crave Toll House Pie. For instance yesterday I was sitting on the couch enjoying having Monday off and watching Wives and Daughters via Amazon’s very cool “Unbox” feature on the TiVo, except all I could think about was chocolate. Finally I paused my movie and started peering into cupboards in the kitchen. I noticed a packet of wonton wrappers that I’d purchased and I had an idea. What if I used the wonton wrappers to make mini Toll House Pie Tarts…and so I did.

I based the cooking time for the tarts on the Nasoya Wonton Mini Quiche recipe and lowered the baking temperature to 350 degrees. For the filling I halved the traditional Toll House Pie recipe and used an ice cream scoop to fill each tart. Each cup was made by layering two wontons diagonally in order to get a maximum amount of coverage in the muffin tin. You can whip these tarts up in around 30 minutes and they’d definitely travel well if you’re looking for something rich and sweet to bring to Thanksgiving.
