Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
0:20 to 0:25
Plan For

Refrigerate for 1 hour

Yield :
48 tassies


  • 2 3-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 pinches pumpkin pie spice


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Add flour and continue mixing until all ingredients are incorporated and a soft dough forms. Cover dough and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Grease a 24-count mini muffin tin with shortening. For best results, use shortening rather than a non-stick spray.
  4. Remove dough from refrigerator. Separate into 48 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball with hands. Place 24 of 48 balls into the muffin tin, and press until base & sides are covered and a cup is formed. Set remaining 24 balls aside and use for second batch.
  5. To prepare filling, mix butter and sugar with electric mixer on low speed. Add remaining ingredients - except pumpkin pie spice- and mix until well blended.
  6. Pour half of batter, evenly, into 24 prepared tassie cups. (Refrigerate extra batter until ready for use.)  Dust the tops of each tassie with a little sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing.
  8. When first batch of tassies are cooled and removed, re-grease muffin tin and add remaining batter. Bake as directed.
