These little treats are packed with plenty of flavor. The nutty filling sits in rich-tasting mini pastry shells. Delicious!

"great recipe, dough was easy to work with, makes exactly 24 cups, perfect, I have used walnuts and pecans also in place of the cashews, dough was tender and the filling was moist. don't over bake, 20 minutes was good for my oven. 10 minutes rest in pan, then they just pop out when i tipped the pan upside down."
