Easy Pecan Tassies

Easy Pecan Tassies

We like to think of our Pecan Tassies as little bites of heaven. Whether you make our Pecan Tassie recipe for the holidays or any day, they are sure to be a favorite. Country Crock, cream cheese and flour come together to make a dough that's so easy to work with, no rolling pin needed. The classic pecan filling is a perfectly creamy-crunchy contrast to the tender crust.

Instructions

Cream Cheese Crust
