Pecan Tassies

Top Review by Claire #3

This is an easy to make, tasty dessert with an impressive presentation. The dough is very simple (only three ingredients!) and is easy to work with as well. I wouldn't describe this recipe as labor intensive, but you do have to stand there and press 24 balls of dough into 24 mini muffin tins. It's not hard, but it takes a few minutes. This is the first recipe I made in my new mini-muffin tin and I was quite impressed. Also, since my pan was non-stick, the tassies popped right out. These freeze well.
