  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine all tart shells ingredients in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Press 1 tablespoon mixture into each cup of mini muffin pans to form 36 (1 3/4 to 2-inch) shells. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from oven. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except chopped pecans and pecan halves in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a full boil (4 to 5 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in chopped pecans.
  4. Spoon filling into baked shells; top each with pecan half. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool 20 minutes; remove from pans.

These little tartlets are delicious! They do taste just like a pecan pie. They did take me a while to make, but my mini muffin pan is pretty small. I would suggest using a pan for 24 mini muffin...

Have been making these for Thanksgiving and Christmas for about 3 yrs in cupcake pans. They are always the first desert gone. They are time consuming but easy to make and I'm not sure if you ...

These are good! They have a nice flavor although they are pretty sweet, but I guess that's the nature of pecan pie. They're actually not too difficult to make, but it was kind of tricky gettin...

The tarts taste amazing, when brought to a work potluck there were none left after the first half hour. The crust, in my opinion, really makes these tarts, since it's not your usual pie crust. ...
