I made these for christmas and everybody loved them. Instead of rolling the dough into balls and pressing them into the muffin tins, I rolled the dough out and used a flower shaped cookie cutter. they looked very nice. I also had to make a triple batch of the filling. I think because my crust was a bit thinnier because of rolling it out. I had well over 80 cookies.

Great instructions, easy to follow. I had a tough time, but it was ME! The first batch I overcooked, the 2nd batch I let cool to long. But the 3rd batch was perfect! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper.

I make these every holiday and i have found that if you flatten the balls (Iuse a small rolling pin) then put them gently in the muffin tin they don't stick. also only fill them 2/3-3/4 full to control spill over.
they never last long in my house.

Super good, but mine stuck to the pan. The filling bubbled and spilled over. It was hard to get the little guys out of the pan. I know I'll make these again, but I think I'll try using mini paper cups. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful! I was nervous making these since my mom was coming for lunch and she is a pro at making tassies, but these turned out perfectly. She loved them.

Very delicious. Mine didn't look very pretty but the taste made up for it. I got a lot of compliments on the crust. I gave credit to the cream cheese- YUM! I will make these again.
