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

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

    Don't know what a "tassie" pan is. What makes it different from the small cupcake pan?

    A tassie pan has indents smaller than a small muffin tin. Pecan Tassies are the most popular.

    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.
