Pecan Tassies - A Family Holiday Tradition

Pecan Tassies Recipe

Yield: 60 cookies


  • 16 oz Softened Butter
  • 12 oz Cream cheese
  • 4 Cups All-purpose flour
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 2 ½ Cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups chopped pecans
  • powdered sugar for dusting the finished cookies, if desired


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and cream cheese until smooth and well blended. Mix in the flour, a cup at a time, until you get a smooth dough.
  3. Drop dough, by the Tbsp (if you have a Tbsp cookie scooper, this works great to portion the dough), and press into the bottoms and sides of a mini muffin pan, as if you were making little pie crusts within the individual muffin cups.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla, and salt. Once the mixture is well combined, stir in the pecans. Use a spoon to fill each of the crusts 2/3 full with the filling mixture.
  5. Bake for 18-22 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tassie's shell is light brown, and the filling has puffed up. Cool, and carefully remove from pans. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
