"Made these for the first time tonite for my appy party and they did not disappoint! Like magic, they all disappeared really, really quickly (note-there were only 5 of us). Did make my own phyllo mini tart shells for this as well. Copies of recipes requested. Absolutely fantastically tasty!!"
"I substituted mini pie shells for the tartlets."
"OMG! These are soooo tasty! I have made them many, many times. Everyone loves them. It makes a lot more filling than necessary so I double up on the shells. Don't worry though, they'll get eaten!"
