Turtle Tassies Recipe 😋

Imagine biting into a Caramel Pecan Tassie: the rich, buttery crust perfectly complements the gooey, sweet caramel and the crunchy, nutty pecans. It's a symphony of textures and flavors in one delightful bite.


1 package (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped

1/4 cup heavy cream

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

Additional chopped pecans for garnish (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a mini muffin tin.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the unwrapped caramels and heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth.

In another bowl, mix together the chopped pecans, all-purpose flour, softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and salt until a dough forms.

Shape the dough into 24 small balls and press each ball into the greased mini muffin tin to form tart shells.

Spoon a small amount of the melted caramel mixture into each tart shell, filling them about halfway.

Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the caramel is bubbly.

Allow the tassies to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes, then carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Optionally, garnish each tassie with chopped pecans.

Once cooled and set, remove the tassies from the muffin tin and serve.
