> Baking spray
> 1 cup all-purpose flour
> 1/2 cup granulated sugar
> 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
> 1 large egg
> 1/4 cup maple syrup
> 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
> 2 tsp vanilla extract
> 3/4 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat cups of a muffin pan with the baking spray. To a food processor, add the flour, granulated sugar, and butter. Pulse until dough holds together.
Divide dough into 12 balls, placing each in the center of a muffin cup. Using your fingers, press the dough into an even layer and halfway up sides.
In a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, whisk the egg, maple syrup, brown sugar, and extract until smooth. Carefully divide mixture among dough cups. Divide the pecans among tartlets.
Bake until pastry is golden and center is set, 25–30 min. Let cool on a wire rack for 10 min. Run a paring knife around rim to release sides of tarts from pan.


UPGRADE: Before baking, top each tartlet with a pecan half.
