My gift to y'all~

This is my gift to each of you. If you were closer I'd make a batch and bring them to your back door... We could sit and have a cup of coffee and swap stories.
This is a special recipe that I can remember making with my mom. She always said it was her special secret recipe. I'm just going to go right on believing that, along with most things she told me ~ and share it with my closest friends.
Pecan Tassies
1 stick butter
1 cup flour
3oz pkg creme cheese
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs karo syrup
1 egg
pinch salt
pecan pieces
Mix the butter, flour and cream cheese into a smooth dough. Chill overnight.
Combine the remaining ingredients to make a syrupy pecan mixture.
Roll the chilled cream cheese dough into pecan sized balls. Press into well greased mini tart pans. Press the dough to the bottom and up the sides, making sure there are no holes in the bottom for the syrup to leak through. Fill with a spoonfull of pecan filling. Bake at 400° 12-15 minutes.
Y'all enjoy~

It's a nice feeling to cook with your mother. I remember those days that my mom taught me simple canning salsa recipes. Happy holidays!
