November 28, 2013

These little pecan tarts are perfect for breakfast or dessert (with a little vanilla ice cream - YUM)! These tasty tarts are super easy to make, just fill puff pastry squares with butter, pecans, and born sugar and bake. They're so good you'll want to double the batch!

Serves 20

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions
Confectioners' sugar

Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the brown sugar, butter and pecans in a small bowl.

Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 20 (3-inch) squares. Press the squares into the bottoms of 20 (3-inch) muffin-pan cups. Place 1 heaping teaspoon pecan mixture in the center of each cup

Bake the pastries for 12 minutes or until they're golden brown. Remove the pastries from the pans and let cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle the pastries with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
