Mini Pecan Pies Recipe

23 December 2012

Everyone loves desserts during the holidays, it's one of the main reasons most of us make resolutions to hit the gym in the new year. But when things are bite sized I just can't help but feel less guilty about indulging in my favorite goodies, and pecan pie is at the top of the yes please list. Last year, I came up with this interpretation sans the (gross) corn syrup, so I decided to take it and shrink it down to fun size. Let's just say they didn't last too long in our household and it packed just enough caramel, crust and crunch to satisfy my craving.
