Servings 18 tassies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup flour, gluten-free *I used Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Flour
  • 1/4 cup graham crumbs, gluten-free *I used Kinnikinnick Graham Style Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Cherry Pie Filling *You can use a gluten-free grocery store brand or your own homemade


  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese.
  • In a second bowl, combine flour, graham crumbs, and salt.
  • Add flour mixture to butter and cream cheese. Blend until combined. Place dough in refrigerator for 1 hour, or until chilled through.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease mini muffin pans.
  • Using a small scoop or spoon, form 1-inch balls with dough and place in muffin cups.
  • Using your fingers, gently press dough balls to form cups.
  • Using a teaspoon, add cherry filling to each cup, being careful to not overfill.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Use an offset spatula or sharp knife to carefully remove the tassies to a cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over tassies.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


You can freeze the tassies if desired, after baking.
