Couldn't be easier to make and looked and tasted great. This is such a good idea for spur of the moment guests. I'll be keeping supplies for this on hand from now on. I had to use phillo cups as no tart shells to be found. You can sure use your imagination to change up the toppings based on what you have on hand.

My grocery store did not have mini tart shells, so I substitute phyllo cups. They came out great! Will definitely use this recipe again. There were 15 phyllo cups in a pkg so it made a few more than 12.
