My Great-Grandmother Rosa’s Pecan Tassies

My Great-Grandmother's family recipe for pecan tassies!

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 25 minutes

Servings Summary: Serves 24

Ingredients
  • Vegetarian

    Refrigerated

    • 1 Egg

    Baking & Spices

    • 3/4 cup Brown sugar, dark packed
    • 1 cup Flour
    • 1 tsp Vanilla

    Nuts & Seeds

    • 2/3 cup Pecans

    Dairy

    • 1/2 cup Butter, unsalted
    • 1 tbsp Butter, salted
    • 3 oz Cream cheese

Recipe Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Sift flour into a medium sized bowl. Cut butter into small cubes and add to flour. Add the cream cheese and cut the butter and cheese into the flour with two knives or a pastry blender. Continue until the dough holds together. Since we aren’t adding any additional liquid, you’ll want to continue to blend way past the stage at which you would normally stop with a pie crust.
  • Gather the crust into a ball and divide into 24 little pieces. I used a kitchen scale and a board scraper to speed up the task but I’m sure RoRo tore little pieces off by sight.
  • Press each piece into one cup of a miniature muffin tin to create a little crust.
  • Mix egg, vanilla, sugar and butter together until no lumps remain.
  • Sprinkle a few pecan pieces in the bottom of each shell. Pour the filling into each cup until the filling is just below the top rim of the shell.
  • Sprinkle pecan pieces over the top of each tassie.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 24-25 minutes.
  • Let cool in the pan completely before removing. Twist and lift to remove!
