Pecan Pie Bites
Oh my gosh, these Pecan Pie Bites are so delicious! We found this recipe on the Land O'Lakes website. I'll definitely make these again.
1/2 cup brown sugar
6 tbsp. butter, softened
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 350F. Spray 36 mini muffin pan cups with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, butter, egg yolk, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls; place each into prepared mini muffin pan cups, pressing dough onto bottom and up one-third sides of each cup, creating a shallow cup.
Combine all filling ingredients in bowl; spoon 1 teaspoon filling into each cookie.
Bake 13-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 10 minutes in pan on cooling rack
Remove cookies from pans by running a small knife around edge of cookie. Place onto cooling rack; cool completely.
