    Tea Time Tassies

    Tea Time Tassies

    I started making these in the early 80's. I bought my first miniature muffin tin so that I could make these. I took these to many potlucks, baby showers, bridal showers, graduations parties through the years. I think I found this recipe in a small Pillsbury grocery store cookbook. This recipe doubles very well.
