Raspberry Tassies Recipe

Makes about 24

Ingredients

For the dough:

1/2 cup butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 cup all-purpose flour

For the filling:

1/4 cup raspberry preserves

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup almond paste

2 egg yolks

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon orange juice

Method

To make the pastry dough, beat together butter and cream cheese until creamy.
Stir in
flour until blended. Cover and refrigerate.
When firm, divide dough into 24
equal-sized
balls. Press balls into the bottom and up the sides of mini-muffin tins. We
suggest using
silicone mini muffin tins, as the tassies are much easier to remove intact.

Pre-heat oven to
400 F. Place 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry preserves in the bottom of each unbaked
shell.
To
make the filling, knead together sugar and almond paste. Mix in egg yolks one
at a time.
Beat well. Stir in the flour, milk and orange juice.
Spoon this mixture evenly
into each of
the shells, covering the raspberry filling.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool
before
removing from muffin tins.
