1/4
cup packed brown sugar
2
tablespoons caramel topping
1
egg
1/2
teaspoon vegetable oil
2
tablespoons finely chopped pecans
  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Unroll 1 pie crust on work surface. Roll lightly with rolling pin. With 2 1/2- to 2 3/4-inch round cutter, cut 12 rounds from crust.

  • 4 Bake at 375°F 10 to 12 minutes or until cheesecake is set. Cool in pan on cooling rack 10 minutes; remove from pan.
  • 5 In small microwavable bowl, place remaining chocolate chips and the oil. Microwave uncovered on High 30 seconds; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until melted; stir. Drizzle over each tartlet; immediately sprinkle with pecans. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tartlets.
