  Mrs. T's Tart Tamper
  
  This is the tassie recipe from the back of the Mrs. T's Tart Tamper I got
  at Lechter's (discount housewares store). The tamper is only $2.89 and well
  worth it! It makes perfect little tarts quickly every time. Oh, and you'll
  need a mini-muffin pan or two. (My nieces and nephews love the little bite
  sized cranberry nutbread gems I bring for them at Thanksgiving.)
  
  TASSIE DOUGH
  
  Mix butter and margarine well, then add flour and mix to a soft dough.
  Chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
  
  PECAN TASSIE FILLING
  
  Fill tarts with chopped nuts 'til about 1/2 full. Mix other ingredients and
  spoon on top of nuts, so that tarts are now about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 F
  for 15 minutes, then at 250F for 30 minutes, or

  I haven't made these lemon ones yet, but I scaled down a larger recipe from
  some cookbook to resemble the pecan tassie proportions, hoping to have
  enough lemon filling for a batch of tartlets. So it may or may not be
  enough, thought I'd let ya know.
  
  LEMON TASSIE FILLING
  
  In a small saucepan over low heat, cook the 1 st three until dissolved.
  Beat the eggs with a mixer and add the hot mix very slowly, mixing
  constantly. Then return mix to the saucepan and cook for about 3 minutes
  until it's of pudding consistency. Stir in lemon peel. Let cool to room
  temp. Fill each tartlet with about 2 tsps of the lemon mix. Bake at 350 F
  for 20-25 mins., or until golden.
  
  The back of the tart tamper package also suggested some other fillings,
  like cherry or blueberry pie filling, or vanilla pudding topped afterwards
  with a strawberry or a few blueberries (glaze with some heated currant
  jelly).
