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.
Pulse ⅓ cup raisins, ⅓ cup currants, apple, brown sugar, strawberries, cranberries, zests, ginger, apple pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor until minced.
Transfer raisin mixture to a bowl; stir in remaining ⅓ cup raisins, ⅓ cup currants, pistachios, bourbon, and butter. Cover mincemeat; refrigerate 12–48 hours, stirring occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Whip cream with a mixer to soft peaks.
Fill each shell with about 1 tsp. mincemeat; top with a dollop of whipped cream.
