  • Crust
  • 3 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • Filling
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Dash of salt
  • 2/3 cup pecans chopped


Step 1

Allow the butter and cream cheese to soften at room temperature. In a glass bowl, mix cream cheese and butter with a mixer until fluffy.

Step 2

Then (using your hands) mix in the flour. Separate mixture into four equal parts and flatten each into a rectangular shape as this will make it easier to ball the dough. Allow the pastry to chill from one-half hour to a few hours.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.

Step 4

Prepare filling by mixing all ingredients gently. Use a spoon, not a mixer. Refrigerate mixture if you aren't using it right away until the muffin tins are ready to fill.

Step 5

Take one pastry portion and cut into 12 equal pieces. Spray your muffin tins lightly with Pam. Roll each piece into a ball and then form the ball into the muffin tin in the shape of a crust. Fill each tart about 3/4 full.

Step 6

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until light golden brown.
