Our mini tassies are easier to prepare than most because there's no separate crust. Betcha can't eat just one!
What You'll Need
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Pecan halves for garnish, optional
What to Do
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat miniature muffin tins with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla, beating with a wire whisk until smooth. Stir in pecans and flour. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, filling each cup to within 1/8-inch from top. Place a pecan half in center of batter, if desired.
- Bake 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool in pans on wire racks 1 minute. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin cup to loosen. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
- Don't have a mini muffin tin? You can bake some, not so mini, pecan tassies in a standard size muffin tin. Fill the cups 3/4 of the way and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until tootpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Thanks to shortcuts like frozen puff pastry, we're able to make jaw-dropping pastries like our Raspberry Cream Danish. These are filled with a homemade cream cheese filling, which makes them extra-special. A raspberry in the center and a sprinkle of powdered sugar are the finishing touches to this bakery-style treat.
