    I made this for a Thanksgiving dessert. It met our expectations and then some!

    I am a diabetic using diet and exercise to control my bloodsugars, but this recipe sounded wonderful. I used 2 mini phylo shell (ready to eat) 25 calories. I melted 1/2 tsp. butter (17 calories) and 1/4 oz. chopped pecans (50 calories) in the microwave. I put 2 (60% cocoa) dark chocolate chips (17 calories) in each phylo tart and divided the nut mixture between them. I drizzled just a touch of sugar free pancake syrup over the top and put them into the refrigerator to cool. I have 2 mini treats at 55 calories each and no leftovers. I think I captured the flavor of her recipe. Linda

    I swapped out the walnuts for pecans and it turned out great. Thought it went together pretty quickly as well.

    So good!! Made this last week and am making another this week. I also had to cook it longer than the recipe states, 15 min. more.

    lfidler, just checking... the time you are suggesting is quite a bit different. did you use a dark tart pan? is your oven calibrated correctly normally? just curious.. with dark pans you have to lower cooking temp and cook longer. i guess i can always cook it the 25 mins suggested, and then add time if necessary.

    this dessert was amazing, but it needed to bake for 1 hour, not 30 minutes.
