Loved, loved, loved these!!! The almond/raspberry flavor mix was wonderful!! They were easy to put together. I used a regular muffin tin and made 12 larger tassies. I ended up covering them with foil after they'd browned and cooking them for nearly an hour total at a slightly reduced temperature to compensate for the larger size, and so I would definitely recommend sticking with the recommended mini-pan!! These were super delicious and I'm already looking forward to tasting them again!! Thank you!!
