    List of Ingredients

    4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
    1 cup flour
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    3/4 cup finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans
    3 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted (optional)

    MIX egg, brown sugar and vanilla; stir in pecans. Spoon evenly into pastry shells, filling each shell 3/4 full.
    BAKE at 325F for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Drizzle with melted chocolate or dust with powdered sugar before serving.

    How To Soften Cream Cheese: Place measured amount of cream cheese in microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 seconds or until slightly softened.
