To welcome this Valentine’s Day, lets have some mini tart fill with chopped pecans and love!

My friend Annette has gave me some pecan tarts few months ago, after i had it, i know this is a must keep recipe!!

(makes 48 mini tarts)

For the crust:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Mix flour, cream cheese and butter together.  Make 48 mini balls into a mini muffin pan.  Use thumb to press into the middle for a tart shape.

For the filling:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mix eggs, sugar, melted butter, salt, vanilla and pecans together.  Fill the tart shells. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.

Notes: do not overfill or they will erupt over the top of the tins.
