Pecan Tarts

by 247tasty

Pecan tarts are a classic and traditional dessert that has been a favorite for a long time. It’s a super easy to make and many have made their version of it already. But this recipe is the best if you’ll ask me. These tarts are amazingly delicious, heavenly, and enough to make to our dessert menu. These are great with vanilla ice cream, so rich and creamy. The flaky cream cheese-based is a total game-changer. If my mids love it I’m sure you’ll love these as well. My kids are so picky and they seldom like desserts that are too sweet. But they are crazy in love with these tarts!


1- 3oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 stick of margarine or butter, softened
1 cup flour
Dash of salt

For the Filling

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

How to make Pecan Tarts

Step 1: In a bowl, blend the cream cheese, margarine, flour, and salt. Then, shape into 24 individual balls. Press each ball into a 1 3/4 muffin tins. Make sure to press the dough in the bottom and sides using your fingers and do not leave any holes.

To make the filling

Step 2: In a bowl, combine the eggs, brown sugar, margarine, vanilla, and salt. Do not beat using a beater or the tops will be crusty. We want a nutty texture so mix well by hand.

Step 3: Evenly divide the pecans in the pastry shells. Then, pour the filling in the shells and fill 2/3 of the shells.

Step 4: Place inside the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before removing from the pans.

Step 5: Remove from the pans and cool completely on wire racks. This recipe makes 24 nutty and rich tarts. Serve and enjoy!
