Annette's notes for this recipe:
Okay so you're stuffed after eating your big Thanksgiving or Christmas meal and only have room for 2 or 3 bites of pie....Then eat one of these little cuties and all is good in the world. OR eat 2, 3 or 4 of them just because they are so darn good. I say you don't feel as guilty eating things like this when they are small.


Recipe is my own.

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix crust ingredients. Mold into 24 balls about 1 1/2 inch. Drop balls into small muffin pans and spread.
2
Mix filling ingredients. Spoon about 1 teaspoon full into each shell. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Then reduce oven to 250° for 10 more minutes.
3
Cool slightly in pan. Top with whipped cream if you'd like. These freeze very well. Enjoy!

You bet Kathy. They are good AND easy. Not to mention they are cute as heck. You can top them individually with whipped cream and then stand a pecan half up in each one or drizzle some caramel over it or just about anything you want. Have fun with them!
