Reviews for Pesto Cheese Tarts
"Used Greek Yogurt instead of Mayo, and also tried this as a dip instead of in phyllo dough. A hit both ways."
"I was experimenting one day and made something like this. It was good but something was missing. Can't wait to go to the store, get the ingredients, and make it. Thanks a lot Jean Kern's, you just made my day!!!"
"Flavour, mediocre.Did not yield enough filling, and filling was not quite thick enough based on recipe measurements."
