JANE's notes for this recipe:
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!

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.

Don't know what a "tassie" pan is. What makes it different from the small cupcake pan?
user JANE LOUISE lovinspoonful - Jun 27, 2010
A tassie pan has indents smaller than a small muffin tin. Pecan Tassies are the most popular.

sounds deelicious....BUT...what is tassie dough?????
user JANE LOUISE lovinspoonful - Jun 28, 2010
Alright, I'm changing the ingredients. You're the 2nd one that wanted to know that. Tassie Dough is the "heading" to MAKE the tassie dough...cream cheese, flour etc....that's what you're making. Then it goes on to the tassie filling you fill the tassies with. It's like little pecan pies, only made with walnuts Soooo good! Let me know if you try them.
