As promised in my column in The Catholic Observer, I am posting my mom’s recipe for pecan tarts.
They are not hard to make and they are DELICIOUS!!
Just take a look at these yummy treats.
To make the crust take
2 cups of flour
8 ounces of cream cheese
and 1/4 lb. of butter
Mix together and form into small balls that will be pressed into greased mini cupcake tins
When you push them down they should form little pie crusts in the tin
Add 1/4 teaspoon of chopped pecans –very fine.
The filling is easy too…
1 box of light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 taspoon of vanilla
4 tablespoons of butter
Melt butter and add to other ingredients. Mix and add 1 tablespoon filling to each tart.
Top off with 1/4 teaspooon or more of more pecans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Remove while warm.
