Okay but far from great. The amount of amaretto seemed small, so I doubled it, and still all I could taste in those tarts was the ungodly amount of sugar that went in them. Having said that, my kids actually liked them, so three stars seem appropriate.

Delicious dessert for a romantic dinner. Fairly large portions, so save room!
