Directions


To make pastry:

  1. Cream the butter and cream cheese together. 
  2. Add the flour and mix well. 
  3. Form the mixture into a ball and chill dough for 1 hour.
  4. Once chilled, cut ball into 4 equal pieces and then cut each piece into 12 equal parts.
  5. Roll each part into ball and use your thumb to press into mini muffin pan.
  6. Bake pastry for 5 minutes before filling to prevent crusts from getting soggy.
  7. While the crusts are baking, prepare the filling

To make the filling:

  1. Put eggs, sugar, melted butter, salt, vanilla and pecans in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Fill each pastry with 1-2 teaspoons of filling.
