“My sister, Sharon brought a batch of these to my home and in about 2 days the four of us had finished them. Yes they are that good! These have a rich shortbread cookie style crust. The filling is similar in flavor to a traditional pecan pie but not quite as sweet or sticky in texture. They should be baked in 24 regular sized muffin tins. This recipe is a money saver over some other tart recipes since it uses pecan pieces. The smaller pieces of nuts are more attractive on the small little tarts and they give a pecan taste with every bite.”
