My Mom has made these for years and it's always a favorite.

**I have adjusted this recipe again on 11/24/11, as the filling was still making too much in relation to the dough **

Ingredients

CRUST

2 c
flour
1 c
oleo (margarine), softened
6 oz
cream cheese, softened

FILLING

2
eggs, slightly beaten
2/3 tsp
vanilla
2/3 c
karo clear syrup
1 Tbsp
butter, softened
1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
brown sugar
1/4 tsp
lemon flavor
2 1/2 c
finely chopped pecans

Step-By-Step

1Mix crust ingredients together. Form them into small balls. Using a mini-muffin pan, drop balls into muffin tins and then using your thumb, press down, creating indentations for the filling.
2Spoon about 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of finely chopped pecans into each miniature crust.
3Combine eggs, vanilla, karo syrup, butter, sugar, brown sugar and lemon flavor (all filling ingredients except the pecans). Pour filling mixture over pecans so that each crust is about 3/4 full.
4Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
