Pecan Tassies

Paula Nemzek from KCTS 9 Cooks
 
These delicious mouthfuls taste like tiny pies.
 
Makes 4 dozen
 
Crust
 
  • 1/4 cup each butter and margarine, or use all butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups cake flour (All-purpose flour works as well.)
 
Mix ingredients together like pie crust. Form dough into 48 small balls, and press with your thumb into miniature muffin tins until dough reaches rim.
 
Filling
 
  • 1/4 cup each butter and margarine, or use all butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 heaping cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
 
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time and beat until smooth. Stir in raisins and pecans. Fill cups just to the top; do not overfill, as filling will rise during baking. Bake at 350 degrees 25 to 30 minutes, until tops are browned.
