I have made these many times and like the recipe. I use the recipe for crust that has 3 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter and a cup of flour instead of the crust that comes with this recipe. I find that this makes more filling than is needed for 24 tartlets. Next time I will make enough crust for 36 tartlets.

The crust was flaky and soft, but recipe calls for way too much almond extract - overpowering. I would use half the amount next time.
