"Very easy and tasty. I added more walnuts so I didn't have such a sticky bite. My husband loves nuts so that was perfect for him! I'm curious why some people thought they should be baked."

"Awesome! I have made these several times...and am always asked for the recipe...Using a little less honey is good too...Otherwise no changes...Always a big hit! Tartlets come already baked... I have made the nut mixture the day before and prior to going to event. fill the tarts..."

"The shells I bought were already baked so I don't know why you would have to bake them again like others have stated. The only big change I made was not using all that honey, it makes them thin and runny. I just add until combined and then filled and put in the fridge. They were good the first time and after the change in honey great!"

"And, I'd also fill the tarts before baking them, if it was made as mentioned in my other post, above. If you simply refrigerate them without using the ingredients as stated in the actual recipe, it won't turn out right. Not using the honey and lemon juice would require it to be baked IN the shell rather than spooning the ingredients in baked shells."

"The recipe sounds good, but it doesn't tell you to bake the shells first, as directed on the package. I assume it goes without saying, but the recipe should be complete, don't you think? Also, I make baklava often and I've never used lemon juice. My variation would be to use finely chopped pecans for half of the walnuts (makes it sweeter), use a sugar/cinnamon mix in place of the honey and use the honey as a "drizzle" over the top, being careful not to use too much. I haven't made this recipe yet, but with those variations, I think it would be terrific, so I said 'yes' to making it again."

"I, like many here, have never used Phyllo (fillo). I purchased the wrong one -- they come in "Traditional" sheets and "Mini Fillo Shells." Go to http://www.athensfoods.com/ for more information. The "mini's" do not need to be baked, and they do not need to be shaped in a muffin pan. When you buy them they look like the picture. So, it is a very simple recipe if you purchase the correct shell (unlike me :)"

I have not seen them here yet, so if you don't live close to the border, just take a few sheets of the pastry sheets and cut them to fit a mini muffin pan, and you can make your own.
and for the other lady, by all means toss them in the oven for a few minutes, they will be great.......good luck.."
