Easy Pecan Pie Tarts


            These pecan tarts are so easy to make and they melt in your mouth.  I won a dessert contest with this recipe and people always rave about how well they turn out.  Such a satisfying dessert to serve and to eat.  They make a great finger-food style dessert for entertaining. 

 


For the shells:

·        2 c. flour

·        1 c. butter, softened

·        6 oz. cream cheese

 

For the filling:

·        1 ½ c. chopped or halved pecans

·        1 ½ c. brown sugar

·        ¼ c. butter, softened

·        2 eggs

·        2 tsp. vanilla

·        ¼ tsp. salt

 

First make the shells by creaming the cream cheese and butter together and then add in the flour.  Roll the dough into small balls (about 1” in size) and place the balls into the refrigerator to chill. 

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

 Mix together by spoon the ingredients of the filling.  Do not beat the mixture. Once the dough balls have chilled, take each one and press them into a muffin tin.  Pour the filling on top of each shell.  Bake for 25-30 minutes. 

     These freeze really well.
