I had purchased phyllo tarts shells on a whim and they were in my freezer forever, so I decided to use this recipe to use them up. It was very simple to throw together, and the tartlets a nice ending to our meal. I did cut back on the amount of sugar, as my jam was very sweet and used egg substitute with success. Thank you Poutine for sharing the recipe.
