Ingredients

48 mini pies
Crust:
2 cups unsalted butter, softened
1 lb. cream cheese, softened
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped, toasted pecans

48 pecan halves

For Crust: In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese. Add flour and mix to create dough. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

Divide dough into 48 1-inch balls and place in mini muffin tins. Using your fingers dusted with flour, press dough into bottom and sides of tins, forming mini pie shells.
