  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.

Expert Tips

These tassies are fragile when they’re hot, so it’s important to let them cool 10 minutes before removing from the muffin cups. They set up once they are cooled.

Sprinkle cookie edges while they are still hot with powdered sugar or red decorator sugar.
