"I did add some sugar to this recipe...just go by taste and I did freeze them...they freeze well"
"This recipe is so easy to make and I LOVE the results...you can easily use other pudding flavors for different holidays I rate this a A+ !!"
"We have reviewed this recipe again and it is correct as published. There is not any sugar in the tart shells.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"We enjoyed these tarts, however I thought there should have been sugar in the tart. They were very easy to make and the filling was just enough for the 24 tarts. I will make these again."
"I too thought there was some sugar or vanilla /almond flavoring missing from the tart shells. Does anyone know if they can be frozen?"
"Very easy to make, although I questioned if there was sugar missing from the recipe. It isn't necessary with the pudding. I made this for a tea party with my daughter & niece, on St. Patrick's Day. Pretty & simple."
