I recently attended a wedding where there were tassies such as these..... or at least that is what I thought. I followed the directions to a T and they were dreadful. I was thoroughly dissapointed with the results. A total waste of time and money. I am an avid baker and found this to be a joke recipe that someone submitted to play a prank. Very upsetting.

I thought these were wonderful. I made them for a friend's wedding and not only were they delicious they were beautiful too. To the person who said she was an experienced baker maybe you had a bad baking day. They are challenging but worth the work. Also the shells may not taste good alone but they are a great base for the sweet filling. Read More

I made these last X-mas for a cookie exchange at work. Everyone raved. I am making them again this year with the exception that I'll be making dozens more. Thanks for this wonderfully sinful treat!! Read More

The caramel filling was very runny. (Caramel apples use 2 T milk for a 14 oz bag of caramels.) I doubled the topping recipe and added half of it to the runny caramel mix. I also had to double the number of cups to hold all the filling. (A definite perk since these are so yummy!) Used real butter rather than crisco in the crust. Excellent. Read More
