Instructions Checklist
  • For filling, in a large bowl stir together pumpkin, granulated sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Add egg; stir until combined. Gradually add half-and-half. Stir just until combined.

Instructions Checklist
  • For pecan topping, stir together pecans, brown sugar, and melted butter.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spoon about 2 teaspoons filling into each pastry-lined cup. Top each with a scant 1 teaspoon pecan topping. Bake about 35 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. Remove tassies from muffin cups and cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, drizzle tassies with maple syrup just before serving.

To Store:

Place tassies in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months; thaw about 1 hour at room temperature before serving.

These are brilliant. Easy recipe to throw together. I even substituted fresh pumpkin in and they turned out just great. My only complaint is that I had to double the mix for the topping. Maybe I was being too generous... Truly a tasty treat and a great recipe!
