1 cup margarine -- softened
6 ounces cream cheese -- softened
2 cups sifted flour
1 box light brown sugar
3 eggs -- beaten
3 tablespoons margarine -- melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup golden raisins
Work softened margarine and cream cheese with a fork until smooth. Add flour in
fourths; work into smooth dough. Chill. Shape into 1 1/4-inch balls; press into
small muffin pans to make shells.
Filling: Slowly beat sugar into eggs. Mix in margarine, salt, and vanilla. Put
5-6 raisins and 1/2 teaspoon nuts in each shell; add filling, not quite full.
Top with a few nuts. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees, until set. Better made 1 to
2 days ahead. Put wax paper between layers to store.
Makes about 48.
