Apple-Nut Blue Cheese Tartlets

These tasty appetizers look and taste gourmet, but they're easy to make and have loads of blue cheese flavor. The phyllo shells and filling can be made in advance—just fill the cups and warm them in the oven before serving. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    I haven't made these yet, but will save and perhaps try for Christmas. When recipe's call for "1 apple" or "1 onion", why is the amount not given? Is it one cup of apples, one cup of onions or 1/2 cup???? Everyone's idea of "large or medium" differs. It would be a big help to have the measured amounts.

    I served these for my Dine-Out Group and received nothing but raves and requests for the recipe. Very easy to make and really delicious.
