I love those yellowed pages – tried and true, battle-tested recipes passed on from generation to generation.
I have had more than a few people tell me that these are the best pecan tassies they have ever had.
I haven’t made these in quite a few years and for some reason I couldn’t find my copy of our family recipe.
My mom hunted through all of her index cards, calls were made to my grandma and my great aunt, and this quickly became the phantom recipe.
I did the first batch of these by just rolling the dough into balls and pressing into the mini muffin cups, which is what the original recipe says to do.
I had some trouble getting the dough a decent way up the sides of the cups without making it too thin and too thick in places.
