Brown Sugar and Walnut Tassies

Sweet, crunchy, and buttery, these Mini Walnut Tarts are made with only a few ingredients you probably already have! These cookies are a staple over the holidays and perfect to add to a cookie tin!

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment add the butter and cream cheese. Cream together for 1 minute until well combined.

Lower the speed and add the flour to the bowl. Mix on low speed until combined, about 2 minutes. At first the dough will look crumbly, but then it will come together.

In a medium bowl, add the brown sugar, egg, chopped walnuts, and vanilla. Mix well with a spoon until fully combined.

Roll the dough into balls and place each ball into a mini muffin pan spot.

Press the dough ball into each of the muffin tin cups, evenly spreading out the dough on each cups. Make sure to get the dough up the sides of each of the mini muffin cups.

Add a small spoonful of the walnut mixture into each of the mini muffin molds.  Bake for 40 minutes or until the mini tarts are slightly browned.
