Chocolate Pecan Tassies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Tender pastry cups with a tasty chocolate pecan filling. You will need a mini muffin pan to make these.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Stir in the flour until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt chocolate and margarine together in the microwave, stirring frequently until smooth. Beat in the brown sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the pecans.
  • Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch balls and press them into the bottom and up the sides of ungreased mini muffin tins. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of filling into each cup.
  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are browned. Cool in pans on wire racks for 15 minutes before removing from muffin tins.
