Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. In medium bowl, using pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle flour mixture with vinegar; add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, while tossing and mixing lightly with fork. Add water until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
  • 2 Shape dough into ball. With floured fingers, press dough evenly over bottom and up side of 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 9-inch glass pie plate. Flute edge, if desired. Prick bottom and sides of pastry generously with fork. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and half-and-half, stirring until smooth. Spread in shell. Cool slightly; refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat topping ingredients to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil gently 3 to 4 minutes or until most of cranberries pop. Cool at least 30 minutes.
  • 4 In small bowl, beat milk and pudding with electric mixer on low speed about 1 minute or until blended; stir in sour cream and orange peel. Let stand 5 minutes. Pour over chocolate layer in shell, spreading to cover evenly. Spoon cooled cranberries over filling, covering completely. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until serving time. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before serving. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Use a small cookie or canapé cutter to cut leaf shapes out of crust scraps. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.

If you don't own a pastry blender, use two forks to cut the shortening into the flour.
