PECAN TARTS




Anyone planning to make pecan pies this Thanksgiving? Well if you’re looking to save a bit of time, and still make a total crowd-pleasing dessert, allow me to recommend these adorable little Easy Mini Pecan Tarts!

Ingredients

  • 1- 3oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick of margarine or butter, softened
  • 1 C. flour
  • Dash of salt
  • Blend together cream cheese, margarine, flour and salt. Shape into 24 balls; press each ball into 1 3/4? muffin tins (press dough in bottom and sides with fingers, do not leave any holes).

Filling:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 C. brown sugar
  • 2 T. margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 C. pecans, chopped

How to make it :
Combine eggs, brown sugar, margarine, vanilla, and salt. Mix well (do not beat with beater, or tops will be crusty instead of a nutty one). Divide pecans evenly in pastry shells. Pour filling in shells, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from pans. Cool on wire rack. Makes 24. “Nutty” rich–a real favorite.
