Pecan Mini-Tarts (Favorite Holiday Recipe Meme)

Following on from Eric's blog post about Grizzlenuckles, here is a recipe for a pecan mini-tart dessert that my Mom has made at Christmas time for the last thousand years. These little things are crack, big time!

Pecan Tarts

1 stick unsalted butter
3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup flour, shifted
Mix ingredients until well blended. Make an oblong ball and wrap in wax paper. Put in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.

Make little balls shaping the insides of the pans.

¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons melted butter
¾ cup or more pecans, chopped

Mix these ingredients and fill the “cups”. Bake in a 350 minutes [pre-heated] oven for 18-20 minutes. [Keep an eye the first time because I am more or less guessing the time]
When cool sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
Makes 24 tarts.
