Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine all topping ingredients in bowl; mix with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
Combine 3/4 cup butter and cream cheese in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add flour; continue beating until dough forms. Divide dough into 36 pieces; place 1 piece into each ungreased mini muffin pan cup. Press dough onto bottom and up sides of cups.
Combine all filling ingredients in bowl; beat with whisk until smooth. Pour about 1 tablespoon filling into each unbaked tart shell; sprinkle each with about 1 teaspoon topping. I used a small leaf-shaped cookie cutter and cut shapes out of the extra dough toplace on the top of each pie.
Bake 25-28 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool 5 minutes in pans; run small sharp knife around inside edge of cups to loosen tarts. Remove to cooling rack.
Serve at room temperature with dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Store refrigerated.
