Pecan Tassies

Posted by Lori:
I just have a few more recipes to share with you from Durant, but these little Pecan Tassies are very much worth sharing.  Only the filling recipe was given in the little program I received, which is interesting.  It says to just use your own pie crust recipe.  Of course, you could use a purchased crust, as well.  I like the idea of using your own crust.  We all have our favorites!  Mine is my mom's, which you can find in our archives or search "pies".

Pecan Tassies
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use a small mini muffin pan.

Use desired pie crust recipe, cut into circles, arrange on top of opening and gently push into holes.  Make sure sides of crust are higher than opening.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon chopped pecans in each pie shell.  Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat on stove top, melt margarine.  Stir in corn syrup, sugar, and beaten eggs.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Spoon filling into pie shells.  Don't over fill.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
