    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.
