TEA TIME TASSIES (Pecan Tarts)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (3-oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sifted flour
- Blend softened butter and cream cheese together. Stir in flour (I used my hands). Chill about one hour. Shape into two dozen 1-inch balls. Place in tiny ungreased muffin tins. Press dough on bottom and sides of cups.
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon soft butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup broken pecans
- Beat together all but pecans until smooth. Divide 1/2 pecans among cups. Add egg mixture (about one teaspoon), and top with remaining pecans. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes. Cool. Remove from pans. Freezes well.
I use this same pastry recipe for several other things that are baked in these pans and need a crust. It is really versatile.
I send along wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving Day to all of you!
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.

I do love my pecan pie for Thanksgiving. These little one's look fabulous! Have a great time today! Hugs, LindaReplyDelete
They look so nice. Have a wonderful day today Nellie, Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Oh, and I remember making MANY of these when I helped a bit in that catering business! I wish I had a nickel for every tassie and mini-cheesecake that we made back then! Happy memories, along with some frustrations, I'm sure! I'll be on my way here in a few minutes, hoping to see you all around noon-ish! Happy Thanksgiving! :-)ReplyDelete
I have never seen a pecan tassie recipe without corn syrup in it. I am copying this one over- it sounds wonderful! xo DianaReplyDelete
These little tarts look delicious. I would love to try the recipe sometime. They would be nice to have on hand at Christmas as well.ReplyDelete
Thank you for all of your lovely recipes. So nice of you to share.
Happy days, Betty
this looks like our Canadian butter tarts, very yummy!!!!!ReplyDelete
We love pecan pie around here and those little individual tassies look great.ReplyDelete
These look delicious. We had apple and pumpkin and some lovely homemade biscotti. I think I need to eat very simply for the next week, but would definitely make an exception for one of these.ReplyDelete
