One Bite Pecan Pies

I have not made this, but lifted the recipe from a message board I frequent. I think these would be great for our dessert party. 😀
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup flour
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup finely chopped Pecans
3 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
Beat cream cheese and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add flour; mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chilled.
Preheat oven to 375. Divide dough into 24 balls. Place 1 ball in each of 24 miniature muffin pan cups; press onto bottoms and up sides of cups to form shells. Beat egg lightly in small bowl. Add brown sugar and vanilla; mix well. Stir in pecans. Spoon evenly into pastry shells, filling each shell 3/4 full.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 min.; remove tarts from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand until set.
