    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.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 60-72

    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.
    5. 5
      Bake for 15-18 minutes in oven, until shell is lightly browned, and filling has puffed up. Cool, and carefully remove from pan.

      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!

      I'm sorry but I have to give this recipe a 1 because the tassies got too brown on the bottom because the temperature was too hot. I have always used the recipe of Better Crocker until now, and while the ingredients are the same, the temperature BC uses is 325 degrees and bake for for 30 minutes. You will avoid having the tassies cooking too fast and getting too brown on the bottom and sides before the filling is done. I am really disappointed because these cost a lot of money to make and they are totally ruined.

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