Introduction

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

    These were very good! I cut down the sugars by using Splenda brown sugar blend--so my diabetic husband could enjoy with us. Even without the whipped cream, they were spectacular. Going to make them for my office party in December. - 11/29/09

    It was ok. Some of the fillo shells stuck to the sheet because of the high liquid content. Make sure you just put the apples int he shells and not the liquid! - 9/29/10

    I made them the other night. I swap out the phyllo pre made pie crust, which I rolled out and took a glass and cut circles and put into cupcake pans. I also added apple pie spice to the butter and sugar mixture . They came out great!!! Due to the swap with the crust had to bake for 30 mins. - 11/5/10

    I made these with home made pastry, added apple pie spice & ground coriander (this spices doubles sweet tastes so you can use 1/2 the sugar). Also used dried apples from my own trees. They soaked up excess liquid & plumped up nicely. - 12/28/10

    Is phyllo dough tart shells something you can find in the grocery store? I don't think I've ever seen them there. - 11/11/09

    Yes, they are available in the freezer section of the store. Ask at your local supermarket; they should be able to help you find them.
