Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and cream cheese until well blended. Beat in flour, at about a fourth at a time, until the mixture forms a smooth dough. Roll into small balls, and press into the bottoms and sides of tart tins or mini muffin tins.
In another bowl, mix together the eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and salt. Stir in the pecans. Use a spoon to fill each of the pastry shells 2/3 full with the filling mixture.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, until shell is light brown, and the filling has puffed up. Cool, and carefully remove from tins.
