We REALLY enjoyed these. We made two batches. One batch as written and for the second batch, my husband added 3 dark chocolate chips to each tassie before adding the batter and pecan. Both batches were delicious. Also, we used a ½ teaspoon of chopped pecans and ½ tablespoon of batter for each tassie. Using these measures made the assembly process faster. To form the little shells: We just put a plastic sandwich bag over the top of an unopened bottle of marinade. Just invert the bottle and press it into the dough ball. This forms a decent shell rather quickly.
Not enough chopped nuts in the recipe. Needed alomst a cup, not 1/4. Ended up running out of batter and had to double because there weren't enough nuts. Next time I did them, used 1 cup and put them in the batter first - worked like a charm.
I used refrigerated pie dough cut into cirles, filled them with the filling and baked in mini muffin cups for a true "mini pecan pie". They were fantastic and very portable. I will definately be making again.
This recipe was out of this world! Melt in your mouth good. I made these for a cookie exchange, EVERYONE wanted the recipe. I followed the directions of another member and did half flower half powder sugar for the crust, it was soooooo good. but you will need to add some extra flower. I quadrupled the recipe and used 3 cups flour, 2 cups powder sugar and it was PERFECT!!
Delicious, but watch out-they bubble all over the place-so don't fill the cups too high. Also I used 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1/2cup flour instead of all flour and it made the crusts sweet and melty-in-your-mouthy.
This is exactly like my Grandmother made when I was a little girl.. Soooo Good.
I made the pecan tassies for Christmas and they were very good, but I agree with "Jan" the dough needs sugar or something for flavor. Any tassie recipes with sugar in the dough?
I just made my first pecan tassies today using this recipe. Oh my, they are just wonderful. I followed the recipe closely. I agree that the crust does not need added sugar. It is a nice contrast to the sweet interior of the tassie. I had never made little crusts like this before but by the time I got to the last ones, I was getting the feel for it (I had to cut my fingernail short on my right index finger so I could shape them without putting my fingernail through the bottoms). I used almost a half cup of chopped nuts in the bottom as suggested by others and a half teaspoon in each crust worked out great. I will be serving them tomorrow in our art gallery for a reception. They should be a hit.
