We REALLY enjoyed these. We made two batches. One batch as written and for the second batch, my husband added 3 dark chocolate chips to each tassie before adding the batter and pecan. Both batches were delicious. Also, we used a ½ teaspoon of chopped pecans and ½ tablespoon of batter for each tassie. Using these measures made the assembly process faster. To form the little shells: We just put a plastic sandwich bag over the top of an unopened bottle of marinade. Just invert the bottle and press it into the dough ball. This forms a decent shell rather quickly.



I used refrigerated pie dough cut into cirles, filled them with the filling and baked in mini muffin cups for a true "mini pecan pie". They were fantastic and very portable. I will definately be making again.



This recipe was out of this world! Melt in your mouth good. I made these for a cookie exchange, EVERYONE wanted the recipe. I followed the directions of another member and did half flower half powder sugar for the crust, it was soooooo good. but you will need to add some extra flower. I quadrupled the recipe and used 3 cups flour, 2 cups powder sugar and it was PERFECT!!
