My really good friend, Tammy, made these cute little pecan pie tarts. She said they are delicious and taste just like pecan pie. I think my husband and brother-in-law would really, really like these gems.
3 oz cream cheese
1 stick butter
1 c all purpose flour
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tbsp butter, room temperature
2/3 c pecans, chopped
Mix all ingredients until soft dough forms. Roll into small balls about the size of a nickel. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Mix all ingredients.
Spray small muffin pan and press 1 dough ball into each muffin cup. Add about 1 teaspoon filling into each. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
