“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 Pumpkin Ginger Tassies..miniature Delights and it worked just fine.”
24 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.).
  4. Spoon cranberry filling into pastry cups until almost full (do not overfill because the filling will make a mess.).
  5. 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.
  6. Tassies can be frozen in a single layer for up to one month.
