OOhh yummie, I had to cut the recipe in half as I knew that eat every one of these. Great flavor and the crust and the sweet filling set each other off wonderfully. Definately a keeper!

We call these mini pecan pies, Pecan Tassies! I make them every year for Christmas gift giving . They are addicting, little tidbits from the south that make you want to move here. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
