1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup flour

Pecan Filling

2 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Dough: Let butter or margarine and creme cheese soften to room temp. Mix together.

Add flour and mix to form soft dough. Chill AT LEAST 1 hour or overnight.

Pinch off pieces of dough, roll them into a ball, press into mini-muffin cup.

Pecan Filling: Mix until well blended. Carefully fill each unbaked tart shell, don't overflow the crust, and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

cook's notes

There were times when I was so tired from baking these mini-tarts that I got out a regular sized muffin pan and made these, only bigger! LOL!! :)
