Oh MY!! Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies


1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury)

2 tablespoons butter, melted cup pecans, chopped

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup corn syrup

2 eggs

1/8 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large non-stick pan, combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs.

Cook on the stove top 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.

Unroll dough and using a 3? cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about ?-1/4? up on the edges.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.

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.

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.
