These bite-sized pecan pies are a festive addition to any dessert spread or cookie platter.
By Kelsey Hilts
I have to admit that as a child these were never my favorite. My mom would make them year after year as part of her traditional elaborate Christmas cookie gift baskets and I would always pass them over, opting instead for spritz, sugar cookies or some other more kid-friendly treat. But over the years my palate has continued to change and suddenly these little bite-sized pecan pies are one of my absolute favorites.
Though making miniature pies seems like a time-consuming process they are
actually very quick and easy and the ingredient list is small which is always a
bonus. They are a festive addition and will provide some visual variety to any
dessert spread or cookie platter. This is my family’s recipe that my mom has
used all of these years. I hope that you enjoy these sweet little pecan
tassies as much as we have.
