Pecan Tassies

Every Christmas I make about 8 batches of these little yummies.  Easy and terrific tassies.

I even made them a little bit healthier this year (if that is possible) but I used half regular flour and half whole wheat flour.  

Louisiana pecans ya'll.

Find a Pampered Chef rep and buy one of these wooden tools.  Only way to smash the dough ball to a perfect shape and saves tons of time.

Pecan Tassies

1 cup flour
1 stick butter (softened)
3 ozs of cream cheese (I used reduced fat)

Roll into 1 inch balls and press into mini cupcake pan

1 egg (whisk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup brown sugar
dash of salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

Fill each mini muffin cup and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes until they begin to brown. Makes 24.


  1. Think we can do this with walnuts? Pecans will be heard to find here.

  2. Hi Lori. I just checked my settings and everything seem to be checked and enabled. I have no idea what happens here...wordpress users can reply to me but blogspot cannot. I am so sorry about this. I'm shooting a mail to the admin.

  3. Oh my word, this sounds soooooooooo good and they look fabulous. I need one of those tools. Hugs, marty

  4. YUM!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe! This may well become a favorite treat for me and mine!

  5. I just asked my youngest (the baker in our family) to pick out some goodiess she'd like us to make next week. This looks like one we ought to add to our list! Yummy! Merry Christmas, Lori!

  6. Oh, I do so love pecans! But I'm partial to the GA ones...we had 3 pecan trees in our yard when we lived in SW GA...That was a treat!

    Your tassies look delicious!

  7. Oh Mr.CC loves these!!! I hope you find a stable at Target:) Merry Christmas to you and your family.


  8. Be still my heart...I love these!
