"Can something else be used instead of apricot brandy if kids will be eating this? I am sorry, it won't let me submit this without rating it."

"The recipe make 3 3/4 of a dozen tartlets. I was cooking for myself and three others. I was positive I would have to bring the leftovers to work the next day, but my friends urged me not too. Half were gone by the end of the night, the rest over the next couple days. Absolutely delicious."
