    I made these to take to an appetizer party. Easy to make and I was excited to try them but when served the phyllo tarts became soggy.

    I love this recipe! Someone always asks for it. Beware, sometimes the shells are completely shattered when I have opened the package.

    Excellent appetizer! I made this for a family dinner. By the way, the leftovers don't keep well as the shells get soft.
