Pecan Pie Cookies

Preheat oven to 400°.

Mix together in a saucepan:

2 tablespoons melted butter
½ cup chopped pecans
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup corn syrup (Karo)
2 eggs
Dash of salt

While constantly stirring, cook on the stovetop over medium-low heat just until thickened. You don’t want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding. Remove from heat and set aside.


1 prepared single pie crust

Using a 3″ cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about 1/8-1/4″ up on the edges of each circle so it can hold the filling.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.

Place on a parchment-lined pan and bake for 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
