Phyllo Tartlets with modern mincemeat

Pre-made phyllo shells are a good introduction to what phyllo is about. Phyllo Tartlets with modern mincemeat (fruit, spices and nuts — no actual meat here) strike a balance between easy and fancy, novel and traditional. Make the mincemeat filling a day or two ahead, then the tarts are quick to bake and assemble before your holiday gathering.
