One Bite Pecan Tassies

One Bite Pecan Tassies ~ For when you need a quick fix for your sweet tooth ! Sticky, moist, sweet and delicious mini-sized Pecan Tassies, and they are great on a Sweet Platter !  #PecanTassies www.withablast.net

Miniature food is just so much more fun ! I love tiny, pop-in-the-mouth sweet and savory bites and these One Bite Pecan Tassies are just perfect.

I think my love for bite-sized food stems from platters. You can have a huge variety of snacks on a single platter and have a taste of them all, without feeling "full" after one {or maybe two!} slices of cake, pie or whatever else.

Now, I am most definitely not one to say no to a big slice of moist chocolate cake, or a slice of rich cheesecake, but I am definitely a platter kind of person myself when we entertain, or just as a treat for the family over a weekend.

I used to surprise the kids every now and then with a savory platter - and "maybe" a smaller platter of sweet treats - after school. Small treats, which I usually also tried to keep on the healthy side and not too rich as we have always had dinner fairly early. Never past 7pm anyway.

And if there were leftovers, I would wrap those up and pop them into their lunch boxes for the next day. Nowadays, since they are all grown up and working/studying, they mostly just tell me that they'll grab something at work.  Dimitri would however take any leftover food and or dessert if he remembers in the morning. He is not one to pack lunch at night.

But, I can tell you that there are never any of these one bite Pecan Tassies left, even when I double the recipe ! They're like a box of popcorn, you know, you just have to finish it all ;-)

ONE BITE PECAN TASSIES

40 Tassies

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Packed Brown Sugar {I used Demerara Sugar}
1/2 cup Butter, melted
2 Large Eggs
1 t Vanilla
1/2 cup Flour
1 cup Pecan Nuts, finely chopped

Pecan Nut Halves {or quarters - halves are a bit heavy and sink into the batter}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat oven to 190 deg C (375 deg F) - spray mini muffin pans with cooking oil.
2.) Beat together the Brown Sugar, Butter, Eggs and Vanilla until the mixture thickens - add the Flour and beat another 30 seconds until well combined.
3.) Stir in the chopped Pecan Nuts and spoon into the prepared pans - fill each muffin hole about 3/4.
4.) Top with Pecan halves {or quarters} - bake 8 - 10 minutes until golden and slightly puffed.
5.) Remove from the oven - let cool a minute in the pan - transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
