Day 1 :: Dessert Buffet

*** I know this post is a couple days late, but I had to take a break from blogging for Christmas! :) ***

Most of the projects during our 12 Days of DIY Projects went into creating our dessert buffet! I have to say, everything turned out great! Now I'm going to enjoy the rest of the holiday and enjoy the beautiful decorations! I hope you and your families have a wonderful holiday season! And for my last DIY project, I'll leave you with a sweet recipe for your own dessert buffets!

Apple Tea Cakes

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 3oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 cup all purpose flour
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter or margarine (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 large Gala apple, peeled and diced

For crust, in a small mixing bowl beat the 1/2 cup margarine or butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed about 30 seconds, or until softened. Stir in the flour. Cover and chill for about 1 hour or till dough is easy to handle.

Form the chilled dough into a ball. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions,roll each portion into a ball. Place each ball into an un-greased muffin cup. Press the dough evenly against the bottom and up the sides of the cup. Cover and set aside.

For filling, in a small mixing bowl stir together the beaten egg, brown sugar, cinnamon, melted margarine or butter, vanilla, lemon juice and diced apples. Fill each dough lined muffin cup with the apple mixture.

Bake at 375 for 20-24 minutes or till filing is set and crust is lightly browned. Cool slightly in pans before serving.
