Quoting michiganmom116:

Yes I have!  They were one of my late grandmother's favorite.

Do you have a recipe for the lemon tassies?

Quoting SweetLuci:

 Have you ever made pecan tassies, like tiny pecan pies? They're great. I usually make them at Christmas along with macadamia nut tassies and lemon tassies.

 Bet these are really cute of a dessert tray.

Yes!  I'm thinking of making these for holiday gatherings along with the pumpkin cheesecake dip and pumpkin biscotti.

Yes.  I use a mini muffin pan for making mine.

Quoting Kelly913:

Recipe sounds delicious, but I'm not familiar with a tassie pan.  Is it like a muffin pan?
