Melt in Your Mouth Tiny Pecan Tarts

These are so easy and melt in your mouth! I love these! So delicious flaky and buttery and they’re always a hit when I make them. My husband loves them especially.. Also My brothers request these every year for the Holidays, as well as my family 🙂

To Make Pastry: Cream butter or margarine and cream cheese. Add flour and mix well. Make into 48 balls; place one ball in each cup of a mini tart pan. Use your fingers or a tart tamper to press out into a tart shell.
