In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Gradually add flour; mix well. Divide the dough into 12 balls. Press each ball into a small tart pan (small pot pie aluminum pan also works). Place tart pans on a cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for about 25 mins. or until lightly browned. Cool.
In a mixing bowl, beat chips and cream. Add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Spread over crusts. Chill for at least 30 mins. If making ahead, can be chilled for a couple of nights.
Drain mandarin oranges and reserve the juice. Pop the crusts and filling out of the tart pans. Arrange fruits on top of filling.
In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and reserved orange juice; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Cool; brush over fruit. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
