I tinkered around in the kitchen with my classic Pecan Pie recipe and came up with these little Pecan Tassies that came out soooo good. The crust absorbs some of the liquid in the filling, so it is not as crusty as when used for other pies. Came out more like a pecan cookie than a mini pie…..but is quite tasty regardless of this change in my regular crust recipe. Not suitable for Induction.
