My brother and I arrived for Thanksgiving dinner and my grandma revealed a surprise: mini pecan pies. She and my dad had already made enough sweets to last through the new year (Pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, granola bars, and- my favorite- strawberry rhubarb pie) but she remembered my brother's favorite part Thanksgiving and had to add pecan pie to the list. What a sweet grandmother:) And there's no guilt here since they are bite size! Plus, then we have more room in our tummies to enjoy all of our other treats!

mini pecan pies

3/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons dark corn syrup
1 egg
2 teaspoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of kosher salt
1 package of mini-phyllo shells

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, and the egg in a small bowl. Add in melted butter, vanilla, and the salt and mix until completely combined. Lay out mini shells onto the prepared baking sheet and fill each she'll with two tablespoons of pecan filling. Bake for 20 minutes until set.
