Pecan Tassies Recipe @pinch

This is a delicious, basic pecan tassies recipe everyone should have in their recipe box. The dough is tender and the filling is chock full of pecans. There's just the right amount of gooeyness to hold everything together. The top forms a sugary crust. Basically, pecan tassies are a bite havesize pecan pie. We have made them many times and have never had the right dough to filling have until now. We used a cookie scoop for the dough and a 1/2 tablespoon scoop for the filling. In the end, both bowls were empty. Janet's right, they are addictive. You just can't have the holidays without Pecan Tassies. Please be very careful, they are quite addicting. Thank you and enjoy!
