I followed the recipe to a T and the pastry was awful,what a mess.But when I went back to the original tassie pastry recipe and used margarine instead of the butter flavored shortening they were really yummy!

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.

These tassies were WELL worth the time! My ONLY problem was the tummy ache I got! Need to add a note. DON'T EAT THEM ALL AT ONE TIME! :-)))))

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.

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!!

I just made these for a wedding reception and everyone thought they were delicious. They take time, but they are well worth it.

I made these cookies for a potluck picnic we attended. They were a great hit and I had many requests for the receipe. I know I'll be making them often for my own family
