White Chocolate Cheesecake Pecan Pie Tarts

Pecan Pie Final 1 Happy early Thanksgiving! For our get together, I’m bringing a salad {new recipe I’m posting on Friday you lucky people!!} and these twice baked sweet potatoes. If you’re serving sweet potatoes this year, I’d recommend mine. They’ve got streusel. Just sayin’.

Now, as promised, here is another more traditional yet insane dessert I’ve taken over the deep end. Oh yes, my friends. I’ve added a white chocolate cheesecake layer to that Pecan Pie of yours.

Oh snap.

These tarts are goo-ood.

Pretty simple, super cute, kinda fancy yet totally do-able! Let’s dive into this heavenly goodness, shall we?

For starters, you will need the following:

Pecan Pie Ingredients For the cheesecake layer, I blended all the ingredients in a mini food processor, one item at a time. This is cream cheese and sugar. Oh, cheesecake…how I love thee.

Pecan pie 1 Then I melted some white chocolate and added that to the mix. Everything is better with chocolate. And cheesecake. And pie. And cream.

Pecan Pie Pouring 1 Splash in some vanilla…

Pecan Pie 2 and an egg.

Pecan Pie 3 Give that a buzz and you should have your cheesecake layer done in a snap! Hello creamy goodness.

Pecan Pie 4 Ok, now lets do the top pecan pie layer. Melt some butter and then stir in some sugar, vanilla and two eggs.

Pecan Pie Pouring 2 Get the corn syrup in too!

Pecan Pie 5 And give the whole thing a mix. Voila! You’re second part done! Easy peasy, right?

Pecan Pie 6 The last thing you need to do is get the pie dough into the tart pans. I like to do this last because then the pie dough stays pretty cold before going into the oven to cook. Chilled pie dough=flaky heavenly goodness. Amen. I used this recipe to change things up and it worked great!

Pecan Pie 7 So now comes the fun part! Start assembling these bad boys by streaming in some of that cheesecake filling in the bottom of your tart shell. This filling tastes awfully good by the spoonful, incase you were wondering.

Pecan Pie 8 Sprinkle some pecans over top of the cheesecake filling…

Pecan Pie 9 …and then drizzle about 4 tablespoons of that pecan pie filling over the entire thing. Bake these at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the top gets golden and lovely. Your house will smell insane. FYI.

Pecan Pie 10 Then once you pull them out, let them cool and serve with some whipped cream. Everything is better with cream. Especially on Thanksgiving!

Pecan Pie Final 2 Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some tarts to eat.

Pecan Pie Final 3 Happy Holidays!

White Chocolate Cheesecake Pecan Pie Tarts
yield: 4 tarts
Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

Ingredients:
FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
¼ cups Granulated Sugar
⅓ cups White Chocolate Chips, Melted
1 whole Egg
½ teaspoons Vanilla
FOR THE PECAN FILLING
1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
½ cups Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 whole Eggs
¾ cups Light Corn Syrup
1-½ cup Pecans
1 whole Batch Of Pie Crust (enough For 2 Crusts – Although You Won’t Quite Use All Of It)
Whipped Cream (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mini food processor, mix together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Stir in melted white chocolate. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again.
Stir in egg and vanilla. Scrape sides of the bowl and mix again until completely smooth. Set aside.
To make the pecan pie layer, put butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs and corn syrup into a bowl and stir. Set aside.
Roll out chilled pie dough and cut it into rounds that will cover the bottom and up the sides of your tart pans (10.2 x 1.9 cm). You’ll need six rounds of dough. Line the tart pans with crust. Make sure to spray your pans with non stick cooking spray first, in case some of the filling bubbles over!
Pour in cheesecake layer, dividing it evenly amongst the six shells. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of pecans over each tart and then top with 4 tablespoons of the pecan pie filling.
Place all of the filled tart pans onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake 25-30 minutes or until top of pie is golden brown.
Cool completely, remove from tart pans and top with whipped cream. Serve.

    Oh wow, these are even better than I thought they would be! I tried pecan pie for the first time a few weeks ago and I loved it but now all I can think is how good it would have been of there was a white chocolate cheesecake layer in there too…

    Hope you and your family have a very happy Thanksgiving!

    You never cease to pull me in here girl….I’m out here searching for chipotle, hot, jalapeno cheesy goodness and when I stumble upon your amazing creations I can’t help but click. Coming from a non-sweet lover that says a lot – but pecan pie was my absolute favorite as a kid!! Looks amazing.

    I don’t have mini tart pans but I do have a regular tart pan (I think it’s 10″). Will that work? These look fantastic btw. :)))

      Sure or just a pie plate should be fine too.
