Another recipe from the family cookbook. This one is from my aunt’s kitchen and will use a little cream cheese, your mini muffin tin, and of course those pecans that are just sitting around.

Pecan Tassies

1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese
½ c butter
1 c sifted flour

Filling:
1 egg
¾ c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp butter softened
Dash of salt
⅔ c pecans

Blend cream cheese and butter. Add flour. Chill 1 hr. form into small balls and shape into muffin pans. Beat together egg, brown sugar, 1 Tbsp butter, vanilla and salt until blended. Divide pecans among pastry-lined pans. Add egg mixture. Bake at 325° for about 25 min. or until filling is set.
