What’s better than a whole pecan pie? Bite-sized pecan pies of course! And you won’t be able to stop at one of these delicious bite-sized Pecan Tassies!

Ingredients

  • Pie Crust
  • 1.5 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter

  • 4.5 oz 4.5 cream cheese

  • 1.5 cups 1.5 flour

  • Filling
  • ¾ cup corn syrup or honey

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 4 tbsp 4 melted butter

  • 2 tsp 2 vanilla extract

  • pinch of salt

  • 1¼ cup chopped pecans

  • 1/2 cup chopped raisins

Directions

  • MAKE THE DOUGH
  • Using an electric hand mixer, combine butter and cream cheese and blend well until combined and fluffy.
  • Add flour and mix by hand until you can form into a ball
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Make the filling while you wait for the dough to chill.
  • FILLING
  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • Combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla and salt in a mixing bowl. Beat until smooth.
  • Add chopped pecans and raisins, and stir to combine. Reserve some pecans to place in the bottom of each tart.
  • ASSEMBLE
  • Roll out dough on floured surface until very thin. Use a biscuit cutter to make rounds and place each round into tart or mini muffin pan slots (approx 1-2″ diameter tart pan). Fit the dough into each hole and pinch the excess dough around the edges. Place a few pieces of chopped pecans into each dough slot then add the filling just below the top of each tart.
  • Bake for 25-30 min.
  • Remove immediately and place on a cooling rack for about 10 min. Serve at room temp. Store in the fridge in an airtight container, or freeze.
