    I made these for my Bible Study group this week and the ladies loved them. They were a big hit. I got 48 from this recipe. This afternoon (Saturday) I made 107 more for my husband to take to his rodeo work group tomorrow. Needless to say, this recipe is a keeper. Thanx for sharing.

    This was very easy to make, though the cloves are a bit over-powering. I didn't care for them much, but others liked them. I missed the layers that baklava offers, since this was mostly filling.

    These flew off the platter at my holiday gathering. Sweet, crunchy, and spicy. I always toast the tart cups before I use them to make them a little crisper. I'm not a fan of clove, and I felt it overpowered the flavor even when I cut it in half. Next time, I think I would substitute allspice or nutmeg. Also, I added more walnuts mostly to finish off the bag but it made the filling less runny. However, adding walnuts necessitated a few cups from a fourth box of tarts.

    Very easy and tasty. I added more walnuts so I didn't have such a sticky bite. My husband loves nuts so that was perfect for him! I'm curious why some people thought they should be baked.
