I just made my first pecan tassies today using this recipe. Oh my, they are just wonderful. I followed the recipe closely. I agree that the crust does not need added sugar. It is a nice contrast...

A buttery crust and brown sugar filling...how can you beat that? The only change I made to this recipe was to use another 1/4 cup chopped pecans on top of the tarts instead of pecan halves.
