Pecan Cups


1 cup (250 mL) butter

To make shells, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add flour and continue to mix. Put dough in refrigerator until firm to handle. After chilling, form dough into little balls and press into bottom and sides of small, tart tins that have been lightly sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray.

To make filling, beat eggs and add all remaining ingredients and spoon into shells. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes.
