    litldarlin's Note:

    This Nut Cups recipe is from my Great Aunt Millie. Alot of my families recipes were passed down from generation to generation. Several years ago, I revised my grandmothers recipes and added more of my own and my families and put them into a cookbook for safe keeping. This is just one of the many dessert recipes that has been handed down. I hope you enjoy them.

      This is a great recipe! I ended up rolling out the dough and cutting small rounds with a biscuit cutter which gave me 24 crusts for the mini-muffin pan. (I had enough crust leftover to make a few crisps in the oven sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.) The dough handled beautifully on a floured surface. The amount of filling was perfect for the 24 mini-tarts. The filling is very sweet and rich. Everyone loved these! Thank you for posting.
