This is a recipe I copied from "swapped recipes" on the old site----but my mother always made these by the dozens
A mini-tart with a tender crust - a one-bite pecan pie. A must for dessert trays.

Ingredients

Pastry:
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, unsalted
1 cup all-purpose flour
dash of salt

Filling:
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 T butter, unsalted,melted
1 t salt
1 t vanilla
dash of salt
1 cup pecans, chopped

Directions

Pastry:
Blend together the cream cheese, butter, flour and salt.
Shape into 24 balls.
Press each ball into 1 3/4 in mini-muffin tins.
Press dough into the bottom and sides with your fingers, or a "tassie tamper", if you have one.
Do not leave any holes in the crust.

Filling::
Combine eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla ans salt.
Mix well, however do not use an electric beater or tops will be crusty instead of light, crispy and nutty.
Divide pecan pieces evenly into the pastry shells.
Pour filling into shells, filling 2/3 full.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven 20-25 mins.
Cool slightly before removing from pans.
Finish cooling on a wire rach.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
