These are lovely! Not too sweet Somehow I only ended up with 36 tarts. I used a flower shaped cookie cutter for pretty edges. I think I will add these to my Xmas cookie tray... They are that pretty. DH liked them too. :)

A great little treat. I substituted sliced almonds for the nuts and dried mixed berries for the dried cranberries based on what was available in my pantry. My baking time was a bit longer (20-23 minutes) for some reason. These were big hit with my husband, and me too!
