This time of year, it's all about the cookies!
I like to make a mix of old favorites and new recipes every year.
It's nice to have the old standbys and still try out new recipes to find new favorites.
This Raspberry Tassies recipe is a little different than most cookies.
Tassies are considered cookies, but they are almost like little mini pies.
These tassies have a rich, flaky shell and are filled with raspberry fruit filling (pie filling). Since the fruit filling is full of great chunks of fruit in it, so I prefer it to using jam (if you're looking for a great recipe using jam, check out my jam bar recipe).
The raspberry tassies are on the less sweet side, so I topped them with a fresh raspberry and a little whipped cream to dress them up and make them just a touch sweeter.
