Reviews for Baklava Tartlets
"This was very easy to make, though the cloves are a bit over-powering. I didn't care for them much, but others liked them. I missed the layers that baklava offers, since this was mostly filling."
"These flew off the platter at my holiday gathering. Sweet, crunchy, and spicy. I always toast the tart cups before I use them to make them a little crisper. I'm not a fan of clove, and I felt it overpowered the flavor even when I cut it in half. Next time, I think I would substitute allspice or nutmeg. Also, I added more walnuts mostly to finish off the bag but it made the filling less runny. However, adding walnuts necessitated a few cups from a fourth box of tarts."
"Can I add nutmeg instead of cloves"
"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!"
"Very easy to make. Everyone at a wedding rehearsal dinner loved them!!"
"Not too bad but not great. I think it has too much butter in it. I will not make this again."
