Categories: Desserts / Pies & Pastries

3  Ounces  cream cheese, softened
1/2  Cup  butter, at room temperature
1  Cup  all-purpose flour
1/4  Teaspoon  salt
1    egg, beaten
3/4  Cup  brown sugar
2  Tablespoons  butter, at room temperature
1/4  Teaspoon  salt
1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
1  Cup  pecans, chopped

1. Mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup AP flour and 1/4 tsp. salt until blended. Chill this mixture for at least an hour. 2. Form the dough into 24 small balls, then press them into the bottom and sides of ungreased miniature muffin tins. 3. Blend the remaining ingredients, except the pecans, to make the filling. 4. Sprinkle a few nuts in the bottom of each pastry shell. Pour the filling mixture over the nuts to fill each cup 3/4 full. 5. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is set. 6. Cool slightly and remove from the tins by running a knife around the edges.
