Cranberry Orange Tassies

"I love tassies! They are like the perfect little bite of pie, but sort of a cookie all at the same time. I got this recipe from one of the special holiday cookie publications that you see at the checkout counter. I somehow always get sucked into buying them! I have also made these with dried cherries and dried blueberries. I haven't decided which is my favorite, I love all three. I am going to post the recipe as written, which calls for refrigerated pie crust. However, I have used the dough from Recipe #118431 and it worked just fine."

Ready In:
24 cookies




  • Combine water and cranberries in a small saucepan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit for 3 minutes. Drain well and let cranberries cool to room temperature. Stir in marmalade, walnuts, and white chocolate and set the filling aside.
  • Per the package instructions, let the piecrust stand at room temperature. Unroll the crust and cut out 24 rounds usings a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter.
  • Preheat oven to 375*F. Using a tamper press the dough into ungreased mini-muffing pans (you can also press the dough by hand, but the tamper makes things go much faster.).
  • Spoon cranberry filling into pastry cups until almost full (do not overfill because the filling will make a mess.).
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. Carefully run a small knife around the edges of the tassies in the pan. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Tassies can be frozen in a single layer for up to one month.

I recently moved to Alaska from Arizona for my husbands job. Right now I am staying home with our 2-year-old daughter. We are all still trying to discover Anchorage and all that Alaska has to offer. I love everything about food. Shopping for food, cooking food, and eating food. My mother is an amazing baker, and I am fortunate that she passed that on to me. My husband is from Zambia, in southern Africa, so we cook a lot of traditional Zambian dishes. I love to cook but rarely do I measure and track cooking times. I am the kind of cook that just throws things together until I get what I am looking for. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="">
