    SweetsLady's Note:

    These are a hit each time I make them. Cute little pecan tarts! Great for CHRISTmas trays! I've also put chopped cranberries or mini chips in them to vary the filing.

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      In 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. Chill the dough while making the filling.
    3. 3
      In another bowl, mix the eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt. Stir in the pecans.
    4. 4
      Roll into small balls, and press slightly into the bottoms and sides of greased tart pans or mini muffin pans making sure to put some of the dough over the lip of the cup. Use a spoon to fill each of the crusts 2/3 full with the filling. It will overflow if you fill too full.

      Just have to add that my mom and I have made these for Christmas yearly. This looks like the same recipe we use and everybody loves these little pies. To press the dough into the mini-muffin pan, we use a tool called a mini tart shaper. They are cheap and wonderful - I know the Pampered Chef carries them. I also read the suggestion by another Zaar chef to use a shot glass. Whatever you use, make sure you dip it in flour between each tart to keep it from sticking. These are a little time consuming but so worth the effort!

      Delicious! A rich tasting crust that is a lot quicker & easier than traditional tart shells. The filling is yummy as well.

      My mom made these to sell at The Women's Exchange in the 60's! I haven't made them in years because I'm not a big fan of the "fussiness" involved, but these came out wonderful. I had a brainstorm about pressing the the crust in the pans after my fingernails kept poking through the first few. I rolled out the dough thin, cut with a 3" round tart cutter, laid each circle on a slightly flattened fluted mini-muffin paper. They were a breeze to then fit in the tins, and tasted exactly the same as the ones pressed in a greased tin! The ones baked in the papers did take the full 18 minutes to cook. Excellent recipe, just the same as Ma used to make! Thanks, Sweet'sLady! Made for PRMR 12/10.
