Cranberry-Nut Tassies

No one will believe that these tassies are gluten free! The best part of making these treats is that the dough is so-o-o much easier to work with than traditional flour. Happy Baking!!!

1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup Jackie's Quick Bread Flour Blend  (Recipe)
1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 tablespoon butter (no substitutes), melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1# cup fresh cranberries, finely chopped
3 tablespoons walnuts, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Place 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese in a small mixing bowl and beat until thoroughly using an electric mixer. Stir in flour mixture. Cover and chill approximately 1 hour or until dough is each to handle.

3. While dough is  chilling, place egg, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of melted butter and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Mix to combine thoroughly. Stir in chopped cranberries and walnuts.

4. Remove dough from refrigerator, and working quickly, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Using a tempered tassie tamper, press dough into the bottom and up the the sides of mini muffin cups. Fill each with 1-2 teaspoons of cranberry-nut filling.

5. Place in a preheat oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until filling is firm. Remove tassies from pans and cool completely on cooling racks.
