PECAN PIE COOKIES

Pecan-Pie-Cookies..--650x300

Ingredients

1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased)

2 tbsp butter, melted

½ cup pecans, chopped

1/3 cup brown sugar

¼ cup corn syrup

2 eggs

½ tsp salt

¼ cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chips for decorating

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a large non-stick pan, combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs.  Cook on stove top over medium-low heat just until thickened, about the consistency of pudding.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Unroll dough and using a 3 inch cookie cutter, cut out circles.  Gently fold about ¼ up on the edges.

Spoon 1 tbsp of the pecan mixture into each circle.

Place onto a parchment lined pan and bake 8 minutes or until the filling is just set.  Remove from oven and cool.

Place chocolate chips in a small Ziploc bag.  Microwave about 15 seconds or until melted.  Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over the cookies.  Cool until set.
