In Texas for the holidays, I make Tarragon Scallops and Pecan Tarts for Daddy. The Tarragon spice was very tasty with scallops. The tarts were time consuming and a lot of work to make, but a simple idea and tasted good in the end. MORE

Tiny Pecan Tarts
I listened to other reviewers. 1) I halved the recipe for the filling, but kept the full amounts of the vanilla and pecans. 2) To prevent sticking, I sprayed a shot of PAM into the bottom of each cup before adding pastry. And after cooking used a sharp knife to cut around each cup before popping out. Each popped out easily. 3) To fill each cup with pastry, I cut pastry into 1/2 and kept cutting pieces by 1/2 into 48 pieces. I rolled each piece 3) I was careful not to fill each cup no more than 2/3 full, because the filling expands.into a ball with my hands. Pressed it into a cup with my thumb shaping it into a well. Pressed with my fingers up the sides up passed the top. 4) I was careful not to fill each cup no more than 2/3 with filling, because the filling expands.

Tarragon Lover's Scallops
I sauteed the scallops in olive oil only. I added the water (instead of wine) and scraped up the bits on bottom of pan, and then added the butter. Made a wonderful tarragon butter sauce. Added scallops back into pan right before serving to serve warm.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
I wanted to share a modification to this recipe that turned out heavenly. I used 2 cups chocolate covered raisins from Bristol Farms instead of chocolate chips. And no nuts. It's what I had on hand. Wow! I loved the cookies and didn't want to share (but I did). Moist, chocolate rich cookies. I looked, and the ingredients on the chocolate covered raisins included chocolate liquor and chocolate butter. I will definitely make these again!
