These are like tiny filled pies made in mini muffin tins. You can substitute pecans for the walnuts if you prefer.
These have become one of my favorite desserts! Not only do they taste great, they're a breeze to make! The first time I made these I didn't have enough dough to accomodate all of the filling, so now I always make just a little bit more dough. Also, when I don't have mini-muffin liners I use fat-free cooking spray on the bottoms of the muffin tins and they come out excellent. The only bad thing about these walnut cups is that they disappear in a matter of minutes! - 15 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I grew up with these walnut cups & every year I make them for Christmas. They're the best! Just dust with confectionary sugar for a holiday delight!! Everyone asks for these every Christmas! They start asking in October. "Can't wait for your walnut cups for Christmas!" Even my old boss called asking for a tin. Said he'd pay me! They're a gift in themselves!! - 22 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
