Ingredients

Dough

Pecan filling

Instructions

Make the pecan pie filling

  • In a large bowl, combine the chopped pecans, brown sugar, and eggs. Then set them aside.

Combine the dough ingredients

  • In a separate bowl cut the cold butter into the flour until the butter becomes pea-sized. I like to use a pastry cutter for this but you can do it in a food processor as well.
  • Then combine the cream cheese with the butter and flour. At this point, I just used my hands because the dough begins to form into one piece.
  • Scoop out 1 tablespoon-sized piece of the dough and form them into balls. Then place them into a greased mini muffin tin.

Fill your muffin tin with the dough and pie filling

  • Using your fingers flatten out each ball so it takes up the shape of the hollow tin. Then fill each pocket with 1 tablespoon of the pecan filling.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes. After the pecan pies cool, you can leave them as the are or drizzle a little bit of melted semisweet chocolate on top.

Notes

TIP:
If you don't have a pastry cutter, a food processor will work too.
These can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
