  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • Two (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar


Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small mixing bowl and stir to mix.

Combine the butter, cream cheese, and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat, using an electric mixer, on medium speed until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture and blend well. Press the dough firmly into 2 equal-size balls with your hands. Wrap the balls in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Roll out the pastry, one ball at a time, to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured work surface with a lightly floured rolling pin. Cut into 2 1/2-inch rounds. Press evenly into the bottoms and sides of forty-eight 1 3/4 x 1-inch muffin cups. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before filling to make Eula Mae's Party Pecan Tarts.

Makes 4 dozen pastries.
