Pecan tassies are a true Southern classic. After all, with pecans being abundant in the South, it makes perfect sense to add them to practically everything. The cream cheese in the dough makes these extra rich.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon butter, softened, divided
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese until creamy. Add flour, beating until well combined. Cover and chill dough 30 minutes.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
     
  3. In another large bowl, combine remaining ingredients, including remaining 1 tablespoon butter; stir until well combined.
     
  4. Shape chilled dough into twenty-four 1-inch balls. Place each dough ball in an ungreased mini muffin cup. Using your thumb, press dough into each cup, forming a crust. Spoon pecan mixture into crusts, filling them three-quarters full.
     
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until filling is firm and crust is golden. Cool slightly, and remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
