  • 4Place each ball in a tiny ungreased fluted tart pan or muffin cup.
  • 5Line the pans by pressing the dough with your fingertips against the bottoms and sides.
  • 6For the filling, place half the pecans in the dough-lined pan.
  • 7Beat together the egg, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt until all lumps are gone.
  • 8Pour the egg mixture onto the pecan topped dough.
  • 9Dot with the remaining pecans.

  • 12These tiny tarts freeze easily.
