Happy Fall Y'all!

How is everyone doing? We are getting Autumn decor up. The weather is actually fallish this year!

Here is a recipe that I really love. If you love Pecan Pie you'll love this!

Pecan Tassies

Pastry Dough:
8 tablespoons butter
3 ounce cream cheese, softened
1 cup sifted all-purpose soft wheat flour
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix together the butter and cream cheese in a small bowl or food processor. Add the flour and blend thoroughly. Put in refrigerator and chill for 1 hour.

Divide and shape 30 balls. Wrap all 30 balls together in plastic wrap and chill slightly. Place each ball in a tiny ungreased fluted tart pan. You can also use a muffin tin. :-D Line pans by pressing the dough with your fingertips against the bottoms and sides.

Sprinkle chopped pecans over dough and press into.

1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

Beat together the egg, sugar, butter and vanilla and salt until all the lumps are gone. Pour the egg mixture onto the pecan topped dough. Dot with the remaining pecans. Bake for 25 minutes or until the filling is set. Cool 5 minutes on a rack and remove from the pans before they are cool, as the caramel will set.

These tiny tarts are SO may want to make more than one batch!
They freze well...but just try to get them into the freezer! HA!
These are wonderful for Christmas cookie trays.

Y'all have a great day!
Live Laugh Love,

Hope y'all have a blessed day!

New post.....coming soon!

I've been trying for the past couple weeks to post but blogger hasn't been nice.

Soooo, I'm going to try this weekend. I want to show off the new notebook I redone, and the pitiful purse I am making for momma.

God Bless You!

Anna Vallance

Home is where the heart is,
Be it rich or lowly place.
It's where we find a lighted lamp
And a cheerful loving face.

Home is a place where the heartstrings
Feel a tug that draws you back;
Where a wealth of precious memories
Recompense for worldly lack.

Home is where a mother's love
Surrounds with tender care;
Where tousled little childish heads
Bow down in sleepy prayer.

Home is where a father's strength
Surrounds protects his own ...
God grant we keep within our hearts
This citadel of home.

A poem

In April
by James Hearst

This I saw on an April day:
Warm rain spilt from a sun-lined cloud,
A sky-flung wave of gold at evening,
And a cock pheasant treading a dusty path
Shy and proud.

And this I found in an April field:
A new white calf in the sun at noon,
A flash of blue in a cool moss bank,
And tips of tulips promising flowers
To a blue-winged loon.

And this I tried to understand
As I scrubbed the rust from my brightening plow:
The movement of seed in furrowed earth,
And a blackbird whistling sweet and clear
From a green-sprayed bough.
