Pecanettes

Pastry:
6 ounces cream cheese
1 cup butter
2 cups flour

Filling:
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
4 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans


Combine first three ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (Dough can be made one day ahead).

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Combine filling ingredients in saucepan. Heat thoroughly on low flame.

Shape dough into small balls and press into miniature muffin tins forming a shell.

Fill and bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

Makes 48

Note: I discovered recently if I spray pans with non-stick spray, they are a breeze to remove - no cracking or breaking.
