Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter,
    softened
  • 1 3 ounce package
    cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose
    flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup
    packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter,
    melted
  • ⅔ cup
    coarsely chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 325 F.
  2. For pastry, in a mixing bowl beat the ½ cup butter
    and cream cheese until
    combined. Stir in the flour. Press a rounded teaspoon of pastry evenly into the
    bottom and up the sides of 24 ungreased 1¾ inch muffin cups.
  3. For pecan filling, in a bowl beat egg, brown sugar and the
    1 tablespoon melted butter until combined. Stir in pecans. Spoon about 1
    heaping teaspoon of filling into each pastry-lined muffin cup. Bake for 25 to
    30 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is puffed. Cool slightly in
    pan. Carefully transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
