    Star Haunted Taco Tarts

    Haunted Taco Tarts
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 pound ground turkey
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Egg Yolk Paint (recipe follows)
    1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
    1 egg white
    1/2 cup chopped tomato
    1/2 cup taco-flavored shredded cheese

    Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender. Add turkey; cook until turkey is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic, oregano, chili powder and salt; set aside.

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

    Prepare Egg Yolk Paint; set aside.

    On lightly floured surface, roll 1 pie crust to 14-inch diameter. Using 3-inch Halloween cookie cutters, cut out pairs of desired shapes. Repeat with second pie crust, rerolling dough if necessary. Place 1/2 of shapes on prepared baking sheets. Brush edges with egg white. Spoon about 1 tablespoon taco mixture onto each shape. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon tomato and 1 teaspoon cheese. Top with remaining matching shapes; press edges to seal. Decorate with Egg Yolk Paint.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    Egg Yolk Paint:
    4 egg yolks, divided
    4 teaspoons water, divided
    Red, yellow, blue and green liquid food colorings

    Place 1 egg yolk in each of 4 small bowls. Add 1 teaspoon water and a few drops different food coloring to each; beat lightly.
