Cooking Instructions

Melt butter and brown sugar in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar is melted and mixture is bubbly; add peaches and pecans.

Reserve 2 tablespoons peach caramel from mixture; set aside to cool. Divide remaining peach and pecan mixture* evenly among tart shells; set aside to cool.
