  1. Preheat the oven. Cut each filo pastry sheet into four equal pieces. Melt the butter in a small pan and mix in the cinnamon.
  2. Lay a piece of filo pastry into each tartlet tin with the excess hanging over the edges and brush with the cinnamon butter and repeat until the filo pastry has been used up. Overlap the pastry squares to give irregular and frilly edges.
  3. Divide the apricots and two thirds of the pistachios between the tarts. Beat together the cream, milk, eggs and honey and pour over the apricots and pistachios.
  4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the custard is set and the pastry is golden.
  5. Sprinkle the individual tarts with the remaining pistachios, dust with icing sugar and serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
