Paula Deen came to my rescue again with one of the sweet treats from the women’s event I organized the food for last week. Her Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus was a big hit as were her Pecan Tassies.
The chewy, pecan pie like tassie was a nice addition to the sweet treat menu.
Our other sweet treats included Marionberry/Blackberry Pie Bars.
Of course we had to have some chocolate and Oreo Truffles were the perfect addition.
And for a nice fall flavor we had Apple Streusel Bars from Our Best Bites. I especially liked the almond flavoring in the glaze – yum!
Paula Deen’s Pecan Tassies were a perfect addition to this sweet treat line up. They are just like a miniature pecan pie – bite size! The addition of the almond brickle chips makes them extra yummy and chewy.
The goal was to have all the food – sweet and savory – bite size so it didn’t require any utensils. Everything could be eaten with the fingers!
