Made these for a tropical buffet I put together for our local Chamber. I changed a few things- I could only find filo dough gem sized tart shells. So I proceeded using these. I didn't have to brown the shells prior to filling, and the filling itself went a lot further (I made 45 quiches and still had filling left). Still all in all things went well. There weren't any left! I'll be making these again.
