  • 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

    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.
