Here is another In The Kitchen with Diana...don't look for it on any of your TV stations any time soon.
I should never have put this glass cake disply on our island, cause now I keep thinking I need to keep food in it...so today I will share with you Pecan Tassies...since when I got up in the morning Eric had snuck in before work and taken all the brownies.
Here is the recipe.
Here are the ingrediants my soochef (me) got ready for me.
Here are my balls, I usually do this before I actually put in the tin cause then I see if I am making them the right size before hand. I got 22 this time. I used the small pampered chef little scoop thing with the little release dealiebob like an ice cream scoop.
Waste not, want not...but right now...it should be waist big...want new pants.
Here they are in the mini muffin tins ready to be squished with that wooden ball squisher.
Here they are all squished...note to self...and YOU...next time make sure the shell goes all the way to the top cause the ones that the filling cooked up and hit the pan they were harder to remove from the tin and broke...and well I had to eat them to hide the evidence...I mean they were clearly not displayable....I mean it is a glass lid on my cake plate and all.
Here they are with half the nuts in them before I add the filling...this makes them pretty much evenly have nuts and it is easier to spoon the filling without nuts falling all over and then the last few don't have nuts. I will remember that the next time I make butter tarts.
In the oven ready to bake. We got a new oven last year when we updated our kitchen and I am so glad we got a convection oven with no exposed bottom cook burner things...although I don't use the convection tons. It is nice that the oven stays cleaner.
All done and cooling.
Ok so I ate one as soon as I could...ok maybe 4 but like I said some broke, and they are just like a mouthful...ha!
Tada! that looks better eh?
So my sweet friend Leslie made the three of us masks so when we are out at the store we can not spread any germs. I found out after I took the picture I had the mask on upside down. I have to go pick up groceries tomorrow so will venture out on my own the first time in almost a month. Oh and check out that gray hair. Thank goodness I stopped highlighting it in November to let it go natural, so it does not look too bad.
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.
