Virginia Ham Tarts Recipe

Virginia Ham Tarts                

4 sheets phyllo dough
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup finely chopped Virginia ham (cooked)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup shredded tart apple
1/4 cup ground Ritz cracker crumbs
4 miniature muffin tins (12 compartments each)
Lay one sheet of phyllo on a large cutting board and brush with some of the melted butter. Repeat with second and third sheets, stacking on top of the previous as you go and ending with fourth sheet unbuttered.
Cut rectangular stack into 48 squares (6 lengthwise cuts. 8 shortwise cuts) and press into muffin tins that have been coated with non-stick spray.
Combine ham, cheese, apple and crumbs in a bowl and press about one tablespoon into each phyllo shell (may be done several hours ahead to this point, wrap and refrigerate).
Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Yield - 48 miniature tarts
