Pecan Tassies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. For pastry, in a mixing bowl beat the 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese until combined. Stir in the flour. Press a rounded teaspoon of pastry evenly into the bottom and up the sides of 24 ungreased 1 3/4-inch muffin cups.
  2. For pecan filling, in a bowl beat egg, brown sugar, and the 1 tablespoon melted butter until combined. Stir in pecans. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon of filling into each pastry-lined muffin cup. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is puffed. Cool slightly in pan. Carefully transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes 24 cookies.

Fudgy Brownie Tassies:

Prepare as above, except instead of pecan filling, in a small saucepan heat and stir 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces and 2 tablespoons butter or margarine over low heat until melted; remove from heat. Stir in 1/3 cup sugar, 1 beaten egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. If desired, place 1 hazelnut (filbert), almond, macadamia nut, or walnut piece in each pastry-lined muffin cup. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the chocolate mixture into each pastry-lined muffin cup. Bake in a 325 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is puffed. Continue as directed.

I've been making this same recipe for more than 40 years. It is a Christmas tradition, but delicious anytime you want to make it. One of my favorites!
