Instructions

To Make the Pastry:

  • Cream butter and cream cheese. Add flours and flax and mix well. Make into 24 balls; place one ball in each cup of a mini tart pan. Use your fingers, a measuring teaspoon, or a tart tamper to press out into a tart shell.
  • Divide pecans and chocolate chips (if using) into each cup. 

To Make Filling:

  • Preheat oven to 350. 
  • Put the eggs, sweetener, molasses, melted butter, salt, and vanilla into a medium bowl. Mix well. Fill the tart shells. I put 1.5-2 teaspoons onto each. Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Notes

 
*** I get a lot of comments from my low carb readers on the use of molasses. I use it for flavor, not sweetness. One teaspoon of molasses has 5 grams of carbs. This recipe uses 1 tsp divided by 24 servings. That is less than .25 grams of carbs from the molasses. If you prefer you can just omit it.    
Notes on Sweeteners: 
I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia in my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet and Truvia.

To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
 
To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.
 
Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.
