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 **

30 Min

Cook:

20 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix 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.
2
Spoon about 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of finely chopped pecans into each miniature crust.
3
Combine 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.
4
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
