For Sweet Auburn Desserts, Sonya Jones has taken the tassie, a teeny Southern tart, and filled it with the lightly licorice-y notes of a Sazerac.

Instead of going all out with rye and bitters (a combo that would surely overpower these one bite tarts), Jones has opted to take the delicate route, filling these buttery little cups with a custard with just a few spoon anise liqueur and a sprinkling of anise seeds adding the same sort of delicate licorice flavor that you get by washing your Sazerac glass in Herbsaint.
