Leslie Malcoun's Pecan Tartlets

December 2005/January 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (21 votes)

Catherine Schumacher used to make hundreds of Christmas cookies for her family and friends. She even defrosted frozen leftovers for Fourth of July picnics at her Michigan farm. Her granddaughter, Leslie Malcoun, took over the baking when she got married more than 30 years ago, and to this day spends hours on old family favorites and experimenting with new recipes. Assistant Editor Carolyn Malcoun can't imagine Christmas without her mom's delightful mini pecan tarts.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Delicious! Relatively straight-forward to make too. The only time-consuming part is the shaping of the tartlets, but even that isn't bad. A big hit at holilday parties. My dad loves to make designs with the pecan pieces on each tartlet. "

A Perennial Favorite

This is one of our favorite family recipes, and it gets pulled out for all the big events. We've tweaked the dough recipe (only use 3oz cream cheese, 1/2c butter, 1c flour) because it made too much and was more complicated than it needed to be. Also, drizzle melted dark chocolate over the top for a good look (and taste!). Everyone raves, and it's not a tough one to make!
