    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    These delicious individual tartlets are great for lunch or a picnic. Source of recipe: Creative Cooking Vegetarian. The cookbook I found this recipe in said it makes 4 tarts. I've made this using miniature frozen tart shells as a short cut and got 18 tiny tartlets. I also used only 1 bunch of watercress as it was quite a large bunch.

      I made these very easily, including the pastry. I rolled it out quite thinly and used it to live a cupcake tray, and I got 12 tartlets. I used 2 small bags of watercress (was very pleased to be able to get it :) ), I did think, no egg? but no, they work perfectly!!! The watercress is quite peppery, definitely a slightly different taste than spinach would be. I like the nutmeg, overall, there were a success and I would definitely make them again, thank you Dreamer!!! Made for ZWT8
