PUMPKIN TASSIES

pumpkin tassiesPumpkin Tassies are a fun treat for the holidays. These delicious mini tarts are pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and pecan tassies all in one!

Raw Spice Bar asked me if I would be interested in trying some of their spices, so I chose their Unpumpkin Pie Spice. It’s amazing! The Unpumpkin Pie Spice is a freshly ground mix of ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, black peppercorns and star anise. It adds that wonderful pumpkin pie spice that we all know and love, but also adds a bit of a different, spicy twist.

These holiday treats are easy to make. Just mix together the filling and topping and use ready-made pie crust dough. Pumpkin tassies are sure to be a hit at your next holiday gathering!
