"Slow down, you move too fast. You've to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobblestones. Looking for fun and feelin' groovy."
--- Simon and Garfunkle

Open House Pecan Tassies

These miniature pecan tarts charm all ages and are a favorite at Wickwood. If your Grandmother didn’t leave you this recipe, treasure it. And pass it along. Makes 24 scrumptious Tassies.

l ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
l 3 ounces cream cheese
l 1 cup flour, sifted
l 1 egg, slightly beaten
l ¾ cup brown sugar
l 1 tablespoon butter, melted
l 1/8 teaspoon salt
l 1 teaspoon vanilla
l 2/3 cup pecans, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a hand held mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese together and add flour continuing to mix until smooth, about 1 minute longer. Shape into 2 dozen 1” balls, press into 1¾” muffin cups.

2. In a small mixing bowl, mix the egg, brown sugar, melted butter, salt, and vanilla.

3. Divide ½ pecans among the pastry lined pans. Add filling and top with remaining pecans. Bake for 17 minutes. Reduce to 250°F and bake 10 minutes longer. Cool and remove from pan
