DIRECTIONS

  • EQUIPMENT: Mini-muffin pan (24 cup). Mini-tart shaper (optional but highly recommended to make perfect tarts fast - I got mine from Pampered Chef).
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Blend softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, and flour to form the dough. Chill dough for one hour.
  • Spray mini muffin pan(s) with non stick spray (Bakers Joy or Pam).
  • Remove dough from refridgerator and roll into 24 1-inch balls.
  • Place dough balls into mini-muffin cups and press balls against the bottom and sides to form a mini pie crust. If using the mini-tart shaper, dip shaper in flour and tap off excess then press straight down on the dough ball.
  • Beat egg, brown sugar, 1 tbsp butter, vanilla, and salt together.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped pecans into dough cups, filling each cup half full.
  • Fill each tart almost full of brown sugar mixture.
  • Place a pecan half on top of each tart (or sprinkle with chopped pecans).
  • Bake at 325F for 25 minutes, or until set.
  • Cool in pans.
  • Serve and watch them disappear!
