We still have plenty that will be shared in the coming weeks or that you can find in the archives.

Like these incredible Dark Chocolate Pecan Croissant Cookies or these Gingerbread Sugar Cookies.

And dozens more!

Pecan Pie Cookies

I brought these Pecan Pie Cookies to the proverbial Christmas table today.

They are perfect for a cookie exchange party or simply just to have out on a cookie platter.

They taste just like a pecan pie, but in a bite size snack. However, I will warn you, it will be hard to eat just one.

They are SO good!

They are also super easy to make and if you want to, you can make smaller circles and make more cookies that way.

These Pecan Pie cookies store for about 5 days in an airtight container.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

These tasty, Pecan Pie Cookies are great for the holidays or an easy, elegant dessert. They look especially beautiful drizzled in chocolate nestled among Christmas Cookies.

Ingredients

  • 9" pie crust dough, homemade or store-bought, rolled to ¼" thickness
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup Millican Pecan Company pecans, chopped
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup dark or milk baking chocolate

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a saucepan, over low-medium heat, melt butter. Immediately add chopped pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, molasses, salt and eggs. Stir often while simmering for about 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken.
  3. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  4. Roll your dough to ¼" thickness and grab a 3" circle cutter (according to amazon I purchased mine back on Feb 11, 2012 and I use them ALL the time!).
  5. Cut 16 circles out of the dough. That's exactly how many I got by re-rolling the dough. If you have more, go ahead and make another. If you have less, that's okay too.
  6. Lay your circles out on a parchment paper covered baking sheet.
  7. Roll the edges of the dough just the smallest amount to form a very low edge, like a tiny tart.
  8. Scoop a tablespoon of the pecan pie mixture into each of the 16 circles.
  9. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden and the pecan pie mixture is set.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet.
  11. Microwave the baking chocolate and drizzle chocolate over the cookies.
  12. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  13. They store for about 5 days in an airtight container.
