Ingredients:  
1/2 c butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 c all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp butter, melted

1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 c pecan pieces, finely chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. For tart shells, beat butter and cream cheese in bowl until well blended. Add flour; mix until a soft dough forms. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls of dough into ungreased cups of a mini-muffin pan. Press into dough with even pressure until dough rises slightly above rim of pan, and forms a shell. Set aside.
Place butter in a small microwavable bowl; microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and the finely chopped pecans; mix well. Using a small scoop, or teaspoon, fill each tart shell with level scoop of filling (do not overfill). Bake 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven; cool in pan 3 minutes. Remove from pan to a cooling rack; cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
To store tarts, cool completely, then place in a tightly covered container. For longer storage, freeze up to 1 month. To thaw, let the tarts stand at room temperature. You may want to sprinkle the tarts with additional powdered sugar before serving.
