Auntie Alice’s Top Secret Mini Pecan Tarts Recipe Revealed
This Mini Pecan Tarts recipe has been top secret within our family
So, it's taken me five years to post this recipe on my blog. Why, you ask? Because it was a recipe that is near and dear to me, and I was hesitant to share it's amazing-ness for the world to now have access to. Call me selfish, but whatevs. This is a recipe that was passed down from my Auntie Alice to my cousins and I and then to my own children. This is the very recipe we made year after year as children when our families were together for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This recipe is truly what made the holidays feel like…the holidays.
My cousin, Carlene, found the handwritten version (the only recipe around) and emailed me the photo of it. We then recreated the recipe and put it all together in photos and a video just for you. Honestly, I'm not sure if this exact recipe is public knowledge elsewhere. Haha! But I will say, I have never tasted any other pecan pie, pecan tart or pecan cookie like it anywhere in the world. They are heavenly!
If you're going to spend time with your family this evening for Noche Buena, I encourage you to make this super easy recipe. It does take time to form the tart crust, but it's meant to so that you and your family and children can spend time together bonding. My hope is that you make this your family tradition for each holiday too.
