About this recipe: Make these easy mini tarts in a muffin tin. They're super easy to make and you can use pecans instead of walnuts if liked.
This recipe was really delicious. I brought them along to a wine tasting party and they were a hit. After filling up my 24 mini muffin tins, I had enough pastry and filling left over to put in the fridge and make another 9. The pastry was a bit easier to manipulate into the mini muffin tins after it had been chilled. - 01 Jun 2010
These have become one of my favorite desserts! Not only do they taste great, they're a breeze to make! The first time I made these I didn't have enough dough to accomodate all of the filling, so now I always make just a little bit more dough. Also, when I don't have mini-muffin liners I use fat-free cooking spray on the bottoms of the muffin tins and they come out excellent. The only bad thing about these walnut cups is that they disappear in a matter of minutes! - 15 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I grew up with these walnut cups & every year I make them for Christmas. They're the best! Just dust with confectionary sugar for a holiday delight!! Everyone asks for these every Christmas! They start asking in October. "Can't wait for your walnut cups for Christmas!" Even my old boss called asking for a tin. Said he'd pay me! They're a gift in themselves!! - 22 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
