Pecan Tea Time Tassies-bite sized tarts with the flavor of Pecan Pie
I’ve always loved these tarts. Easy to make and even easier to eat. My Grandma used to make them when I was a kid. I never thought about where the recipe came from.
Then I was introduced to Pampered Chef products. The recipe came with one of their tools or the mini muffin tin or in one of their cookbooks, I can’t remember. Anyway, I fell in love with them all over again.
I’ve always said, there’s no such thing as an original recipe. There are adaptations on recipes but people have been cooking and baking since we figured out how to make fire.
Good recipes are meant to be shared. The end. I’m not saying if you are publishing a recipe that you shouldn’t give credit where credit is due. We don’t always know where a recipe came from. Or if someone else had the same great idea. So many recipes get handed down from mother to daughter, generation to generation.
Pampered Chef was started in 1980. The recipe I adapted (it’s the same one as Pampered Chef’s) is published in one of my Grandma’s old cookbooks, copyright 1975. And I’m sure it’s been around long before that.
It’s a good recipe. I hope my children will be passing it on to their children and grandchildren.
Then just fill and bake!
Dust with some powdered sugar and you got the perfect pecan treat for any party.
