JANE's Story

I went to my cousin's wedding and one of our family recipes popped up on the dessert table. After eating a dozen of these over a 4 hour period, I thought you all would like to be let in on this recipe. By the way, I don't usually eat anything with sugar in it, but it was a special occassion and I've been good all year, and I've lost so much weight being good and...okay, my conscience didn't buy that either!?! Maybe you can enjoy these without guilt and let me know if YOU can eat only one!


to make tassie dough:
2 3 oz. cream cheese room temp
2 1/2 cup flour
1/2 t salt
1 cup butter
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoon butter melted

Directions Step-By-Step

In bowl, mix all tassie dough ingredients. Wrap in plastic and chill in fridge for 1 hour. Take out and Make malted milk ball sized dough balls and press into greased tassie pan.
Next, in another bowl, mix tassie filling. Fill each tassie dough cup. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Note: Don't make the tassie cup very thick. The dough ball should be about a malted milk ball size. Also, only fill the cup up 1/2 way with the filling.

That's a great idea Lawanda. Thanks. It would make for a thinner crust, too.

Also,I have to make so many tassies when I make them,I started rolling the dough out,cutting with a 2 inch cookie cutter.Goes much faster when you're making hundreds for a party for my family!

I've been making these for many years,(with pecans)they are indeed addicting,NOONE can eat just one!
Sometimes I make lemon tassies by baking the crust and filling with lemon curd.Delicious too!
