Mrs. Spugnardi's Pecan Tarts

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Happily Retired

My mother-in-law made these wonderful tarts that are unique because of the brown sugar. We love to eat a tart a day for several days since they freeze very well!

I have been the lucky recipient of these pecan tarts and they are out of this world!!!! They are the kind of dessert that you want to hide so your DH won't be into them. It is very easy to eat more than one and I have never been able to put any in the freezer at my house. Hats off to Mrs. Spugnardi's wonderful recipe and to her daughter-in-law for carrying on this family recipe.
