My Mom's recipe for pecan tarts, uses cream cheese in the crust..and yummy pecans and brown sugar in the fillintg...a family favorite on holidays for many, many years. (I use this crust and fill them with the Lemon Curd..soo good..see my recipe for lemon curd :)But need to pre-bake shells for approx 15-20 min. when filling does not need to be baked)
