Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies are a rustic, new twist on an old Southern staple: The Buttermilk Pie! They are a fabulous Sweet and Southern dessert to have on hand when hosting a game day watch party. Everyone wants a little something sweet as the game winds down, but not a big dessert. Single serving desserts lets everyone graze as their sweet tooth dictates! 🙂 After hot wings, chili, and hamburgers, our rustic Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies, made with Dixie Crystals Sugar, are a sweet, bite size dessert….. the perfect way to end the game!
These tassies. Oh, my goodness. They are DECADENT.
Our family has eaten the entire batch in one weekend.
UPDATE! 🙂 Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies were awarded 1st Runner Up in the Dixie Crystals “Sweet and Southern Recipe Contests” at Blog Life University in Atlanta! Thank you, Dixie Crystals & #BLU16!
Desserts are a little tricky when it comes to serving guests at tailgates and at home watch parties. Single servings are best, but cookies and cupcakes are just so…..expected. You know what I mean? Let me introduce you to the most ah-mazing single serving dessert: the Bourbon Buttermilk Tassie!
As you know, I am excited to serve as an Ambassador for the Blog Life University Conference in Atlanta at the end of July. As part of the conference, I am participating in the Dixie Crystals Sweet and Southern Desserts Recipe Contest.
I wanted to develop a recipe that would serve LOTS of friends on game day. This recipe yields 48 Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies. I know, that sounds like a lot, right? But if you invite 12 couples over for game day, that is twenty four people. If each one has two (and they will!! 🙂 ) then that brings you up to the quantity of…..48! Spot on. Game. Day. Ready. These are SO GOOD. And, plate & present ’em on this Game Day Football Table Cover for a touchdown!
Rustic Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies are showcased in a the traditional tassie cream cheese pastry. The rich, sugary filling provides just the right amount of sweetness, and the tassies are topped off with a dusting of pumpkin pie spice. Divine! They are perfect for fall entertaining. I used real, salted butter and Dixie Crystals Granulated Sugar. The bourbon is very mild when woven with the other ingredients; it blends well and adds a depth of flavor to the tassies. Y’all know I love to cook with bourbon and visit bourbon breweries!
If you make Bourbon Buttermilk Tassies for your tailgate, tag them #totallytailgates !
Happy game day!
