Pecan Tassies

The following cookie recipe was made and shared at my 2007 Holiday Cookie Swap. You can read about it and get other cookie recipes from the event HERE.

Pecan Tassies
1 cup butter
1 brick cream cheese
2 cups flour
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups pecan halves, chopped

For dough - Beat butter and cream cheese. Add flour and mix until a soft dough forms.
For filling – Melt butter/margarine and stir in brown sugar, vanilla, and egg. Add chopped pecans.
Preheat oven to 350.
Prepare a mini muffin pan with small balls of dough (melon baller size) in each well.
Using a tart shaper or your fingers, press the ball of dough up the sides of each well to form a mini tart.
Fill each tart with filling.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
