Baklava Tartlets

Instead of layering the honey and nut mixture between buttery layers of phyllo dough as you would do when making traditional baklava, here you spoon the mixture into mini phyllo tart shells.  This is a great recipe for entertaining because your guests can pick these up with their fingers and not worry about making a mess.
