The recipe I use for Pecan Tassies is old. It was given to me by my mom who got it from my grandmother or an aunt. It is one of the very first “complicated” recipes I attempted to make after I had a few years of cooking experience. I was still pretty inexperienced at this point. I remember being so careful and cautious, and they turned out. But it took me all day the first time. Times have changed, I am more about speed and taste these days!
I used to make these for my grandpa. He never asked for much, so anytime he had a request for Pecan Tassies, I made them. I was one of the few in the family that would make them for him. They are time consuming to make. I always felt like they were a labor of love.
