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
1In 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.
2Next, in another bowl, mix tassie filling. Fill each tassie dough cup. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
