Pecan Pie Bites

Is it just me or does anything in mini form automatically make it 1. cuter 2. taste better? 


That is definitely the case with these mini pecan pie bites. They are little bites of heaven and literally were gobbled up in minutes at our recent Christmas party. 


Of course, I used pre-made pie crust to make these even easier! 




Pecan Pie Bites
recipe from Tasty Bites Cookbook


makes about 3-3.5 dozen


Ingredients
1 pie crust
2 cups chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Directions


Preheat oven to 325. 


Using a round cookie cutter or bottom of a glass, cut circles large enough to cover sides of mini muffin tin. Press the circles into the pan to form shells. 


Combine filling ingredients in a mixing bowl; mix well. 


Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon into each shell. [This is important! Do not overfill! I thought some of mine looked "empty" so I added more but then they overflowed and got stuck]


Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and filling is set. Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. 


Enjoy!
