How to Make It

Step 1

Spray 12 (2 1/2-inch) muffin pan cups with vegetable cooking spray. Heat the oven to 375°F.

Step 2

Sprinkle the work surface with the flour. Unfold the pastry sheet on the floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut the pastry into 12 (3-inch) squares. Press the squares into the prepared muffin pan cups. Brush the top edges of the pastry square with the egg and prick the bottom of the pastry squares with a fork.

Step 3

Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Cool the pastry in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Using a small knife, cut a small slit in the puffed center of each tartlet shell and gently press down. Remove the tartlet shells from the pan and cool completely on the wire rack.

Step 4

Place the ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and orange peel, if desired, in a medium bowl. Beat with a whisk until the ricotta mixture is smooth. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 5

Pipe or spoon a heaping tablespoon of the ricotta mixture into each tartlet shell. Sprinkle with the chocolate, pecans or additional cinnamon, if desired and serve immediately.
