Tea Time Tarts have been in my family for years, in fact it's not a holiday get together without these bite size snacks!
But the amount of work required to make the shell for the outside of the tart leaves you wishing you had picked up some pre-made cookies instead!
However by using refrigerated pie crust I have cut the prep time down to 15 minutes! Add that to the 25 it takes to bake the tarts and you have yourself this family favorite in less than an hour!
Step 1: Unwrap the Pie Crust
Remove refrigerated pie crust from their box and lay out on a flat surface.
Step 2: Cut Dough Into Circles
Using a round cookie cutter, or anything with a circular lid, cut circles into the dough.
Take each individual circle and shape into tart molds.
Step 3: Filling
Combine the following in a medium size bowl and spoon into tart crusts.
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. butter
2/3 c. chopped pecans
Step 4: Bake
Bake for 25 minutes at 325 degrees or until filling is firm to the touch.Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Sprinkle Tea Time Tarts with powedered sugar for added presentation points!
