  • Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add flour; mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Divide dough into 24 balls; place 1 in each of 24 miniature muffin pan cups. Press onto bottoms and up sides of cups to form shells. Beat egg in medium bowl. Add sugar and vanilla; mix well. Stir in nuts; spoon into pastry shells, filling each 3/4 full.
  • Bake 25 min. or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 min. in pans; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand until set.

Variation

For a quick garnish, dust cooled tarts with powdered sugar instead of drizzling with the melted chocolate.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place measured amount of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or until slightly softened.

How to Easily Drizzle Melted Chocolate

Melt BAKER'S Chocolate as directed on package. Use a teaspoon to drizzle chocolate back and forth over dessert in desired design. Or, spoon melted chocolate into small resealable plastic bag; press out excess air and seal bag. Cut small piece (about 1/8 inch) from one of the bottom corners of bag. Use bag to drizzle chocolate over dessert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very delicious recipe I remember my Mom making every year at Christmas time. a very delicious recipe I remember my Mom making every year at Christmas time. I have a little tip: instead of mixing the pecans into the filling before pouring in the crust, we always filled the crusts with the chopped pecans, and then poured the mixture into each cup. This way you will have plenty of pecans in each cup and control the amount of filling so you won't have an overflow when it cooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I looked up this recipe for the recipe for the crust. I use the filling recipe from the karo syrup label. I don't care for brown sugar and this recipe uses white granulated sugar. I liked the idea of putting in the pecans first. My mother made these and I lost her recipe. She used the ingredients in this recipe but I liked the karo and granulated sugar better. I put a dash of salt in everything. I quadruple the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter and I had great fun doing this recipe together. My daughter and I had great fun doing this recipe together. We took it to our annual Thanksgiving meal at church. By the time we got through the line they were all gone! In anything you do you have to check on what your are cooking because oven temps vary. One man said he liked the idea of eating a "whole" pecan pie and not near the calories of the big ones. Thanks again for submitting a great recipe!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tasting cookie........ Very good tasting cookie........ more like a small pie. My mother-in-law's recipe called for 1 tsp butter added to the filling. 1st batch I overfilled and they ran terrible. But after adding the butter, it thickened up the filling and did not leave an air bubble in the middle. My family loves them warmed up in the microwave for just a few seconds to taste like they are fresh from the oven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this last night for a family gathering. I made this last night for a family gathering. I read lots of suggestions and took advice from several. I added salt to the dough and butter to the filling. I took them out at 18 min. I put the pecans in the bottom of the pastry then the filling on top. Thet turned out very good. Next time I will not drizzle with chocolate I will just put a half of a pecan on top of each to decorate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read almost all comments because I had never done these myself. I read almost all comments because I had never done these myself. I found it easier this way: Almost freeze dough, cut into chunks, roll into balls. Then press between 2 sheets of GREASED wax paper to about 2 1/2 in. diameter circles. Grease muffin cups, and put one circle into each, pressing it into shape. Tasted just like my Mother used to make!! BYE BYE diet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They were easy to make. They were easy to make. I made them for the first time this year for a Christmas family gathering. They were a big hit. Alot easier than making pecan pie. I did the first batch drizzled with the chocolate and the second batch with powdered sugar sprinkled over top. Both looked professionally done. Thanks for a great recipe. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This receipe is great. This receipe is great. I only made a single batch this time, but will definatly double it next time. My 6 year old grandaughter helped me. I made them with Splenda brown sugar so my husband could enjoy them. Pecan pie is one of his favorites. It was easy and fun to do with a grandaughter. I did not add the chocolate.
