Pecan tarts. Delicious, bite sized pecan pies. They taste especially good fresh and warm with ice cream. Just a warning, this recipe did not make 36 like it says. It made 2 less than 2 dozen. So if you are making this for a large group, make more than double.
Start with 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 6 tbsp. of butter (approx.. 1/2 of butter), an egg yolk, and a dash of vanilla.
Cream together until light and smooth.
Add 2 cups and 2 tablespoons of flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
Stir together until all is combined.
Take the dough, roll into 3/4 inch balls. Place into greased mini muffin tine.
Ina different bowl mix together half a cup of brown sugar...
A cup of chopped pecans, which is different from a cup of pecans, chopped...
And 1/4 cup heavy cream.
Stir it all together until...
It resembles this gooey, yummy, sugary mixture.
Place into the dough. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F
Until all is yummy, delicious, golden brown bundles of sugary pecans with buttery crust. Perfect for desert, and snack, and just eating because they are just soooooo good! ☺
I do not have a picture of the finished product, mainly because I forgot, but also because my family decided to finish them up right away and eat them for breakfast.
