    Pecan Butter Tarts. Anyone have the recipe for Pecan Butter Tarts in the Mini Muffin Pan? It has butter, cream cheese and flour for the tart shells. It was in a Canadian S/B from 2000 or 2001 and on our Canadian CC we can't go back past 2002 (figures!)

    TIA,

    Jodi

    There is a recipe for Pecan Tassies in the All the Best cookbook, pg. 87, that looks similar.

    Pecan Tassies


    Ingredients:
    Tart Shells

    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    3 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 cup all-purpose flour

    Filling

    2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup pecan halves, finely chopped
    Powdered sugar (optional)


    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350°F. For tart shells, beat butter and cream cheese in Classic Batter Bowl until well blended. Add flour; mix until a soft dough forms.
    Using Small Scoop, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls of dough into ungreased cups of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan. Dip Mini-Tart Shaper in flour; press into dough with even pressure until dough rises slightly above rim of pan.
    For filling, place butter in Small Batter Bowl; microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Finely chop pecans using Food Chopper; add to batter bowl and mix well.
    Using Small Scoop, fill each tart shell with level scoop of filling (do not overfill). Bake 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven; cool in pan 3 minutes. Remove from pan to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
    Yield: 24 tarts
