Belarus Korzinochki Tartlets are a popular dessert in Belarus. These tartlets are made with a shortcrust pastry shell and filled with a creamy, sweet filling. They are perfect for a tea-time snack or a dessert after a meal.

To make the pastry shell, start by creaming together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This is typically done using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, but can also be done by hand with a wooden spoon. Once the butter and sugar are creamed together, beat in an egg yolk and vanilla extract until well combined. Gradually add in flour, mixing until the dough comes together. The dough is then rolled out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch (6 mm). Using a cookie cutter or a small glass, circles are cut out from the dough and placed into a greased muffin tin. The bottoms of each pastry shell are then pricked with a fork to prevent them from puffing up during baking. The pastry shells are then baked for 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown.

While the pastry shells are cooling, prepare the filling. The filling consists of sour cream, sugar, egg yolks, cornstarch, and vanilla extract. These ingredients are whisked together until well combined to create a smooth and creamy filling. The filling is then poured into the cooled pastry shells, filling each shell about 3/4 of the way full. The filled tartlets are then baked for 15-20 minutes, or until the filling is set and the tops are lightly golden brown.

Once the tartlets are done baking, they are removed from the oven and allowed to cool in the muffin tin for 10-15 minutes before being transferred to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps to prevent the tartlets from breaking or crumbling when they are removed from the muffin tin. Once cooled, the tartlets can be served as is or dusted with powdered sugar for a finishing touch.
