These were very tasty little cups. I do think they could use a little bit more phyllo dough. The directions don't say to cut them into squares but I assumed that was a step needed to be taken. I do think the baking times were a little off for the cups because mine were nice and brown in only a couple of minutes. They are very tasty though and it's a great fast eye catching recipe. I didn't notice until after I was almost finished with the recipe that it calls for graham crackers (which I forgot to buy). So I just skipped that step. I do think it would be tasty with them though. Thank you so much for this lovely recipe! Made for Hidden Gems cooking Event.
