Bake-Off Challenge Round 4

Do you like Pecan Pie? What about teeny-weeny, really cute Pecan Pies?

I've got the best recipe for Pecan Tassies and they're so easy to make. And not too time-consuming. I know I say that a lot but it's important to me to have a list of great stand-by recipes that I can make quickly. Time to bake isn't something I always have in large commodity.

Prep time on these little puppies is about 20 minutes. The recipe is on my Facebook Page so I'll just give a quick recap here...

First, this little dowel is your new BFF when making tassies of any kind. I just put a teaspoon by it so you'd see how big it is.

I've made my dough and am pressing it into the tiny muffin tins with the dowel.  You can see how I simply "ball up" the dough, pop it into the tin, then gently press the floured dowel down to make the shell.

Now the tassies are filled with the filling. Hate to be redundant but there we are!

Next, I spoon a teaspoon of chopped pecans into each tassie. If you don't eat the chopped pecans, this goes much faster.

Here we are…ready to bake! I doubled the recipe, btw. One recipe usually makes between 20-24 tassies.

And here they are about 18-20 minutes later. All baked and ready.

Aren't they pretty?

And they're even cuter in the little holiday baking liners. I got mine at Michaels (100 for $1.99, I think, or thereabouts).

I also made a Pumpkin Pie for dessert on Thanksgiving, and this pie is anything but obligatory. I use an older recipe that includes scalded milk and molasses and oh...this pie is to die for. I nearly ate the entire thing myself. And I only wish I was kidding! : }

Next, I fixed my Aunt Lyda's time-honored Sweet Potato Souffle with the brown sugar and pecan topping. So yummy!

And if you haven't kept an eye on Angie Hunt over at Lovin' Oven Bakery, she's been goin' macaron crazy! And those gorgeous little creations look as beautiful as I know they are tasty!

Blessings on your Monday, friends, and let me know what you're baking! I may be asking for your recipe. :)
