Teatime Tassies

Picture of Teatime Tassies
Teatime tassies are a new recipe that I recently discovered. The recipe is one by my great aunt Lois and resembles a miniature pecan pie. I like it because it satisfies my sweet tooth but also has enough substance to it that I don't crave more. It is fairly labor intensive for what is essentially a cookie though so keep that in mind before you start.

6 oz cream cheese

Cream the butter, cream cheese and flour in a bowl. Then, shape it into a ball and chill in the refrigerator for an hour.

Step 3: The Filling

While the dough is chilling, chop the pecans finely. Then mix half of  the pecans with the brown sugar (half will go on top as a topping). Crack the eggs over the mixture. Once those are beaten in, add the softened butter.

Step 4: Shaping and Filling the Tassies

Shape the dough into 1 inch balls (the recipe claims that  it makes four dozen but how you can get above two is beyond me). Press them into a muffin pan. Then, pour in the filling and  sprinkle pecans on top.
