  1. To Make Pastry: Cream butter or margarine and cream cheese. Add flour and mix well. Make into 48 balls; place one ball in each cup of a mini tart pan. Use your fingers or a tart tamper to press out into a tart shell.
  2. To Make Filling: Break the eggs, but do not beat. Add sugar, melted butter, salt, vanilla and pecans. Mix well. Fill the tart shells. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for about 30 minutes or until delicately browned.

I made these tarts exactly as described and took them to work the next day. The entire office asked for more! No changes necessary... These are outstanding!

My family really loved these! Even my kids ages 11 & 8 who 'say' they hate nuts! However, I agree with a previous reviewer...I ended up with WAY to much filling. Maybe a cut back on one egg a...
