- 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup margarine
- 2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs, well beaten
- 2 cup brown sugar
- 4 cup chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the pastry:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the cream cheese, margarine and flour in a mixing bowl and blend together. Divide into 6 equal portions, then divide each portion into 8. Press the dough into tart tins or small muffin tins.
For the filling:
Combine the eggs, brown sugar, pecans and vanilla in a mixing bowl and mix well. Pour into the lined tart tins, fill only 3/4 full. Bake until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool a bit before removing them from the tins. After they are baked and cooled, they can be frozen in an airtight container.
