From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. Flaky
pastry cups hold a sweet nutty center. They are
typically made with pecans, but walnuts taste great
too. I make them every Christmas. They freeze well.
1/2 c margarine or butter
3 oz cream cheese
1 c flour
Press pastry in bottom & up sides of tassie tins.
3/4 c brown sugar, packed
1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1/2 c pecans, coarsely chopped*
Put 1 heaping tsp of filling in each.
Bake @ 325, 30 min OR
until pastry golden & filling puffed.
Cool slightly in pan, before removing to rack.
Makes 24 cookies.
* OR walnuts
