Appetizers / Snacks
These Baklava Tartlets are totally addictive — don’t say we didn’t warn you. They’re so cute and perfectly poppable, it’s hard to resist the sweet, syrupy, nutty bites. And they're so easy to make, too.
Test Kitchen Tip
Save yourself a little time by lining your baking sheet with parchment; the parchment catches the syrup drips, leaving only the clean rack. And don’t toss that extra syrup; it’s great in cocktails or to sweeten tea.
Simmer honey, water, sugar, orange juice, cardamom, cinnamon stick, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until syrup reaches 235°.
Off heat, stir in lemon juice and zest. Cool syrup completely, then strain and discard solids.
Dip phyllo shells into cooled syrup to coat, letting excess drip off; transfer shells to a rack set in a baking sheet.
Combine walnuts and pistachios; stir in 3 Tbsp. syrup until nuts are completely coated. Divide nut mixture among shells; let set 1 hour before serving.
