I love cookies any time of year but at Christmas…
I turn into Cookie Monster!
So for Day one of #ChristmasCookies week I wanted to share a new tassie with you. I fell in love with these little cookies about a year ago. Simply put, tassies are little cookie crusts filled with your favorite fillings.
Some cookie crusts are have nuts most are made with a base of butter, cream cheese, sugar and flour.
Candy Cane Tassies have bits of crushed candy canes in the dough and sprinkled on top. A simple chocolate brownie filling works perfectly with the peppermint cookie base.
