The two-bite pecan tarts satisfy the sweet tooth with far less guilt than pecan pie.

These are great and are really not that difficult to make. I can never understand why someone would assume that a recipe such as this one (which is a prize-winner and has probably been tested multiple times) is at fault when they have a problem. If the dough was too soft, then the butter used was probably too soft. I also had no problems with too much dough. It worked out perfectly. I love pecan pie and this is a great bite-sized alternative!

I admit I'm not sure why some of you thought this was a lot of work, I whizzed through this following the directions to the word, and mine cooked perfectly. I loved them (as did my family -- they went SO fast!) Something about these gave me this excellent nostalgic feeling too as they evoke so many memories of good holidays, pies, cookies, and even date nut bread.

The filling is great (both texture and flavour) but the crust is just horrible, too soft and doesn't set even after baking it for couple minutes longer.

You must have done something wrong if the bottom didn't set. You should try again, they are so worth it!

My humble opinion of these cookies are that they are a lot of work and not really that fantastic. I think if you are crazy about date bars these might be your ticket. Don’t get me wrong, I love dates., (who wouldn’t with their super high glycemic index!) but these didn’t twinkle my toes. In fact there is an entire plate of them in the fridge that are not calling my name. (gasp!) These need to bake for a solid 17 minutes in my convection oven. Even at that they are a bit….. soft. Maybe I did something wrong. Could be me. None the less, I don’t care for the texture, but the flavor is good.

I used mini cupcake paper liners cause I had a fear the they would stick. Doing this made them even smaller. They came out really good but they're really sweet! I finished them off with the icing sugar but it melted away, so I wouldn't recommend doing that.

They are better without the wrappers and you're right about the powdered sugar topping. Most treats are too moist for powdered sugar to hold up too unless you are serving them immediately.
