1 8 oz. pkg. of Philadelphia Cream Cheese

3/4 cup butter

1 & 2/3 cups flour

1/4 tsp salt

Pecan Filling:

1 Egg

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 Tbsp. butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

dash of salt

2/3 cups coarsely broken pecans


Let the cream cheese and butter soften at room temperature. Once soft, blend together with a wooden spoon or rubber scraper. Stir in the flour and salt. Continue stirring until all the flour is absorbed. Chill 30 minutes. Shape pastry into one-inch balls. Place in ungreased, mini-muffin tins. Press dough with thumb around the edges and bottom until evenly covered. Make sure to spread dough up to the edge of the muffin cup

Pecan Filling:

Beat together the egg, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt until just smooth. Divide half of the pecans among pastry-lined cups. Add 1 teaspoon of egg mixture and top with remaining pecans. Bake in a 325 oven for 25 minutes or until filling is set.

Cool and remove from pans
