  • Ready In

  1. Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add flour; mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chilled.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough into 24 balls. Place one ball in each of 24 miniature muffin pan cups; press onto bottoms and up sides of cups to form shells. Set aside. Beat egg lightly in small bowl. Add sugar and vanilla; mix well. Stir in pecans. Spoon evenly into pastry shells, filling each shell three-fourths full.
  3. Bake 25 min. or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 min. in pans; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand until set.


  • Variation
  • For a quick garnish, dust cooled tarts with powdered sugar instead of drizzling with the melted chocolate.
  • How to Soften Cream Cheese
  • Place measured amount of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or until slightly softened.

These are so, so yummy and look very nice on a plate combined with other cookies/desserts. They are great with or without the chocolate!
