I made this for the first time yesterday and it was delicious! I made exactly as the recipe stated and had way too much filling leftover, but that actually turned out to be a great thing. I made three batches in mini muffin pans, and I used the rest of the filling to make a pecan pie. Yes, the filling makes a wonderful pie! I didn't know what to do with the remaining filling for the tarts, so I whipped up a shortbread pie crust. The pie was actually a bigger hit than the tarts!
If you opt for a pie as well, I suggest this recipe. Add in more crushed pecans to the filling to thicken it up a bit. When making the crust melt 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, mix in 1/2 cup of powdered sugar well. Then add 2 cups of flour and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. Put in a pie dish and bake at 350 until lightly brown. Easy as... well pie!
