Another winner Dancer! I used tiny tartlet tins(1 1/4" across, 1/2" deep) and got 2 dozen - only needed 20 minutes in the oven. Great flavor and a very easy recipe to follow - One step was missed - mixing the mushrooms with the cream cheese mixture - it is obvious though that you combine the two before filling the phyllo cups Thanks Dancer
