Simplify the preparation of baklava by using mini phyllo shells. This bite-size version includes mashed adzuki beans in the honey-walnut filling.
2/3 cup drained canned adzuki beans, rinsed and well mashed (1/2 cup mashed)
1 cup honey, divided
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbs butter, melted
2 tsp McCormick® Gourmet Collection Cinnamon, Saigon
1 tsp McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts
4 packages (15 shells each) frozen mini phyllo shells
Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat mashed beans, 1/2 cup of the honey, sugar, egg, butter, cinnamon and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Add walnuts; mix well.
Spoon mixture evenly into phyllo shells. Place on baking sheets.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until phyllo is golden brown and crisp and filling is set. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Drizzle about 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining honey over each dessert
