Pecan Delights

It will be impossible to keep a smile off your face while making these decadent pecan cookies. Not only do these cookies physically resemble mini pecan pies, but they also consist of the same caramel-like, rich, nutty flavor in the filling, and a flaky, buttery crust. No matter what occasion you make these cookies for, they are sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Ingredients

For the Crust:

            3oz cream cheese

            1 cup flour

            1 stick butter

For the Filling:

            ¾ cup brown sugar

            ½ cups (or more) nuts pecans

            1 egg

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Prepare the crust:

            Mix ingredients together and shape into 24 balls.

            Spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray, coating evenly.

            Work dough around the rim and bottom. Do not lay on top.

Prepare the filling:

            Mix ingredients together until well combined.

            Spoon dough into each pocket of crust and bake 10 minutes or until 

golden.

Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.

Dust with powdered sugar.

Personally, my favorite way to make these cookies is with my mom, listening to Christmas music. However, feel free to bake these delicious cookies at any time of the year. And remember that if you have a family anything like mine, these cookies will not last long!
