Toffee Pecan Tartlet

Updated on November 23, 2014

This simple recipe for this amazing tartlet was passed on from a great friend who, like me, is a lover of baking and sweet treats. Now in order to make this be sure that you have plenty of time.


Always feel free to pass on this great recipe. You can use it for parties, get togethers, and those evenings where you just want to relax and enjoy some sweets.

Garnish them how you like, I find that instead of using whipped cream, I add either french vanilla or butter pecan ice cream as a tasty garnish.
