Pecan pie is always a favorite around here! If I’m going to have pie for dessert, it’s going to be a pecan pie any day of the year, not just at Thanksgiving!
Pecan pie is the perfect combination of a sweet, caramel-y, nutty filling in flaky pastry crust! We top it with fresh whipped cream… ahh, so rich and decadent. These cookies have the same delicious flavors!
Pecans are great in cookies but these are different than any ol’ cookie you’ve eaten before. These cookies have thin flaky crusts with a layer of the amazing nutty caramely pecan pie filling we love so much!
The key to success with this recipe is the consistency of the filling. If it’s too runny, it’ll run out of the mini crusts. If it’s too thick it won’t spread to fill the crusts and caramelize on the edges.
You’ll start by combining all of the filling ingredients and then stirring constantly over low heat until the mixture slightly thickens. Low and slow is definitely the way to go on this recipe!
You’ll want it just slightly thinner than pudding so that once it is put into the crusts it will spread easily. If you happen to cook it a little too long you can mix in up to 1 tablespoon extra corn syrup to get the right consistency.
