    these were so yummy and easy! i even used half parkay (trying to keep down the calories) and fat-free cream cheese and they were still delicious! bet the recipe would be even better as is.

    These were very good, I found it necessary to chill the prepared pastry before using it for easier handing, after it was chilled it was fine, I am going to double the recipe and try it in regular-size muffin pans next time, thanks for sharing Charlotte!...Kitten:)

    This recipe is a 'must have' at our family holiday parties. I have to make at least 2 extra batches because my husband and kiddos eat them as fast as they come out of the oven! I have found over the years that the pastry is easier to work with if it is chilled for a bit before putting it in the muffin tin. AWESOME RECIPE!!!!!!!

    These little pecan treats are just wonderful! Very easy to make. The pastry is so buttery and delicate, yet it was very easy to work with. I let them cool about 10 minutes in the pan before removing to a serving plate. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe Charlotte J! Nick's Mom
