Mini tarts—sticking!

while utilizing nonstick mini tart molds (also sprayed them with Pam), each stuck after they cooled. Should I have removed/flipped upside down immediately after baking? They are alot of work to have a 3% yield, lol. The dough for this particular recipe is cream cheese based. Thanks for any suggestions!

Instead of Pam try a different release agent. There are sprays made specifically for baking that are an oil and a starch. I like Bak-Klene the best but have had good success with other brands too.

So no easy way to blind bake for minis? I’m trying to unmold & freeze hundreds!
Well... two legitimate suggestions above. You don’t agree with them????

Another consideration would be to use loose-bottom tart pans... which may not be as “mini” as your considering.

What kind of tarts? Knowing that might pen up the options, especially if sides are not absolutely required.

Hi! Oh my gosh, totally great advice! I baked this morning’s a bit longer & perfect release. I am going to buy the baking Nonstick spray this weekend.

The tarts are chocolate silk, lime custard, fig-frangipane, & pinenut w/ rosemary. Each will be be baked except the chocolate.
