KEYWORD: PECAN PIE COOKIES

Pecan Pie Cookies have a thin flaky crust with a layer of the amazing nutty caramely pecan pie filling we love so much! These are the perfect cookies for any occasion!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 prepared single pie crust homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
OPTIONAL
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs. 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.
  3. Unroll dough and using a 3″ cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about 1/8-1/4″ up on the edges.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.
  5. Place on a parchment lined pan (it’s important to line it) and bake 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
OPTIONAL
  1. Place chocolate chips in a small Ziploc bag (use brand name, the store brands tend to leak). Microwave about 15 seconds or until mostly melted. Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over the cookies. Cool until set.
