Divide pastry into 6 portions, and shape each into a ball; press each into a 4 1/2-inch tart pan. Sprinkle morsels over pastry; chill 30 minutes.

Beat eggs and next 7 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Pour into tart shells, filling each half full. Arrange pecan halves over filling; drizzle with remaining filling.
