Pecan Tassies

Serve these traditional bite-size pecan pies at your next gathering! They’re perfect for holidays and other events.


  • 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


  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.
