We have seen these with pecans, but for some reason the walnuts really change the flavor to a more rich and deeper flavor to me. I use those cute little pastry tins (miniature cupcakes) to put these in (24 to a sheet I believe). I include these in my Christmas bundles each and every year.

Loved these. I will make these again. It's nice to have a different nut, seems everything is pecan. Although, not sure if I done something wrong, I got 48 pasry tarts from this.
