    Cindy, you are a girl after my own heart. I had a lot of cherries left from my daughters tree that I turned into pie filling. Now I know what I am making with them.

    I am a big fan of all things cherry. And I bought some mini muffin tins just for making tassies, but haven’t made them in awhile. I think I will fix that problem soon.

  3. Cynthia says:

    These look so good. I love the cream cheese in the crust! I love everything about these cookies and I think I need to add these to my menu.

    These sound perfect for an after-school or afternoon snack. I make pecan tassies and they’re one of my favorites, so I know that I’ll love your cherry pie tassies.
