“These little tarts are a great hit - and look beautiful on a holiday tray!” - by Carla
Original recipe yields 5 dozen
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, mix together the margarine and cream cheese until well blended. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, until the mixture forms a smooth dough. Roll into small balls, and press into the bottoms and sides of tart pans or mini muffin pans.
- In another bowl, mix together the eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt. Stir in the pecans. Use a spoon to fill each of the crusts 2/3 full with the filling mixture.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, until shell is light brown, and the filling has puffed up. Cool, and carefully remove from pans.

"These are my favorite cookies to make during Christmas time. I do use real butter instead of margarine though, as everyone seems to prefer it.

After that, I only need to do a little reshaping before pouring the filling in. "
"These are absolutely delectable! However, it took me over two hours to make them all (and I had 4 pans!). And just a tip-- this recipe made more like 7 or 8 dozen. Also, I would highly recommend being..." See more careful not to overfill them. If the filling overflows it is a huge pain to remove them from the pans!"
"I have to say this is my husband and I's new favorite cookie recipe. These are so good! Just a warning to first time baker's of Pecan Tassies, they are very labor intensive! I would definitely recomme..." See morend having more than 2 mini muffin tins to make these! They are well worth the hard work!"
