Mini Pecan Tassies

I made these with a twist tonight.

Crust
7 T. chilled butter
1 cup carbquik cake and cookie flour mix
3 T. cold water


Filling
1 egg
1/2 tsp. Splenda quick pack
1/4 cup sf monin caramel syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon agave nectar
Dash of salt
3/4 cup of chopped pecans

I used the same directions and they turned out very good.
Crusts did not stick at all.

^Mmm, those look great! I bet the crust was easier to form into the tins. It was so mushy that I had to keep sticking in the freezer to shape.

How do you like agave nectar? I've heard mixed reviews.

I like it! It's fairly high carb but like Black Strap Molasses, added in very small amounts it adds a very nice flavor.

That's a crust I CAN work with - and the filling - especially with the caramel syrup sounds wonderful - THIS one I AM going to try! Thanks Kevin!!
