Pecan Pie Cheesecake Cookies

Tammy Brownlow


I wanted to create a new cookie - something that had never been done before. A cream cheese base with the wonderful flavor of cheesecake and a stove top cooked pecan pie filling topped with a toasted pecan. I can't wait to give this on Christmas Eve to my family. This cookie will be a showstopper at a cookie swap or your next get together. Enjoy!
