Pecan Tassies ~ A Holiday Favorite

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
Powdered sugar (optional)

Recipe for tart shells, beat butter and cream cheese in a bowl until smooth. Add flour; mix until a soft dough forms. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight. Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls of dough into a greased Mini-Muffin Pan. Dip Mini-Tart Shaper in flour; press into dough to form a tart shell. For filling, combine all filling ingredients in Small Bowl; mix well. Fill tart shells evenly with filling mixture. Bake 20-25minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from mini-muffin pan to a cooling rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
