Pecan Tassies

Paula Nemzek from KCTS 9 Cooks
These delicious mouthfuls taste like tiny pies.
Makes 4 dozen
  • 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.
  • 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.
