I know, I know…the blogosphere is being flooded right now with holiday goodies, endless sweets, more recommendations for your cookie tray than you can handle…so, what’s another one 😉
I love these little bite size beauties. They bring a little something different to the table…they aren’t round, they don’t include chocolate, they aren’t flat. They’re little bits of nutty goodness, and they’re SO easy to make. No excuses!
And yes, you can cheat and use premade pie crust…I promise I won’t tell.
Mini Pecan Pies
from Meg’s Everyday Indulgence
For the crust:
1 stick butter, at room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup AP flour
For the filling:
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon butter, melted
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
Crust prep: cream butter and cream cheese then mix in flour. Roll 24 balls and press in mini-muffin pan.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together filling ingredients. Evenly fill dough cups. Bake for about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle confectioners’ sugar lightly over pies after cooled, if desired.
