Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Tassies

My grandma was a southern belle, who taught me that pecan tassies are a southern tradition for tea-time. Tassies are little cookie-sized pies. Nothing is more southern than bourbon and chocolate is necessary in my family. This recipe has it all! They are very addictive, so make sure you make a double recipe if you are giving some as gifts. You can make this as mini-tarts (pictured) or as a single pie as well. Keep in mind that all southern belles have their mini-muffin pans.

How to Make Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Tassies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2In a large saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over medium heat, then let cool.
  • 3In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy, then add sugar, dark corn syrup, vanilla, bourbon and salt. Mixing together.
  • 4Add a small amount of the melted chocolate/butter mixture and mix together. Then add the rest of the chocolate/butter mixture.
  • 5For pie/tassie crust, stir the flour, cocoa powder and sugar together. Work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Then slowly mix the egg/water into the dough until it comes together as a ball.
  • 6For tassies, with your fingers, work a small dough ball out in a mini-muffin pan. Place several pecans in each and then fill with filling. You can also make (about) 5 mini-tarts or 1 pie. It is addictive, so make enough to share.
  • 7Bake until set, 15 minutes for tassies, 25 minutes for tarts and about 30 minutes for pie.
