cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon soft butter
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
A dash of salt

Pastry: Blend cream cheese & butter. Stir in sifted flour. Shape dough into one inch balls and place into tiny greased muffin tins. Dip finger in flour and then press dough on bottom and sides (making a little dough cup).

Filling: Mix butter and brown sugar well. Add beaten egg, salt, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Stir in crushed pecans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
