You're very welcome, Jean.

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE.

Here is another filling for you..if you like pecans...
The dough is exactly the same..I use a mini muffin tin.
Filling
1 cup pecans chopped
3/4 c brwn sugar
1 TBS melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

Mix all together fill tartlets bake at 375 for 15 min.
They are easier to remove from pan when cooled.
Can top w/powdered sugar or go for it and top w/a dollop of whipped cream
If you like pecan pie you will like these.

Thanks Suz.  Evelyn has several other really good sounding fillings posted over at the bizarre site too.

you're welcome, Jean. :-) Having a supply of baked tassies in the freezer has saved me so many times with unexpected company.

Do you ever fill them with savory concoctions for canapes?

I haven't, but I can't imagine them being anything but delicious as the pastry is so yummy and would lend itself to a savoury filling. A smoked salmon mousse with a sprig of dill, or taramosalata comes to mind and I can taste them in my mind and they taste GOOD!

I had to google on taramosalata.  I'll bet that would be good!

LOL... it is true. I would never even look for a Greek recipe without checking with you first...

I ate this for the first time at a local Greek restaurant a few weeks ago and guess what? Simon has decided it is the new wonder food. So I guess I shall have to make it for him. Not that I didn't love it mind you.

Also we had a custard tart made with filo.. any ideas on what that is??

It could have been one of two things, Claire. If it was a piece of custard filo pastry, soaked in syrup, then it would be

If it was a drier custard pastry - no syrup, but possibly with a sprinkling of confectioners' sugar and cinnamon, then it would be

They are both lovely, although I tend to go more for the Bougatsa as it is less sweet (you can adjust the amount of sugar you sprinkle on). :-)
