My sisters-in-law are experts on making these Miniature Nut Cups, also known as Tea Tassies. These present themselves exceptionally well on a holiday cookie tray, and practically melt in your mouth.
My next few posts will include the cookie recipes I have introduced to you in my cookie preview post.
I am starting with my most favorite cookies, the Cream Wafers. If you read the ingredients, you might not be able to envision how decadent these really are. They are very light and flaky, resemble a puff pastry, and practically melt in your mouth.
If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
We have a lot of super talented bakers in our parish, and they all love to share their favorite recipes.
This is one of those yummy recipes I received, since I really loved this dessert.
I cut down on the original amount of sugar, since the ready made pie filling I used, is quite sweet.
If you wish to make your own filling, which most likely will be less sweet than this one, you may want to add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar to the dough. I prefer it just the way I posted it.
The middle layer of white chocolate, nuts, and caramel, makes them “oozing” with goodness.
