How to Make Grandma's Cheesy Pecan Bites


  • 1Preheat oven to 350.
  • 2Mix together first three ingredients to make a dough. I just use my hands.
  • 3Roll dough into approximately 1" size balls. Place balls on ungreased, non-stick cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Press a pecan half onto top of each cheesy snack.
  • 4Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for five minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Serve immediately or store in air-tight container until ready to serve. The cheesy bites will keep at room temperature for two days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
