These are pure Holiday for me. Growing up my Mom would only make these at Christmas and Thanksgiving. The are made with pure LOVE. The best is to have them still warm outta the oven ..I will talk to them . "Dear little buttery flakey sweetness, Why do you only come around during the hoidays? I have missed you so!!" lol

How to Make Mom's Mini Pecan Pies

Step-by-Step

  1. Crust..mix butter and cream cheese. add flour. mix well with hands. form into a ball and place in refrgerator for an hour or so.
  2. Preheat oven at 350
  3. Mix filling..mix eggs, butter, and vinegar. Add brown sugar then pecans.
  4. Using a mini muffin pan make small balls . For years we used our thumbs to form the crust but in most kitchen stores you can find a wooded tool to form the crust. Fill each pastry cup with filling.
  5. Bake at 350 for around 20 min. Allow to cool for 10 min before removing from pan.
  6. Note..my advice is to double or triple this recipe. This makes around 24-30 pies. It is just a tease ,lol
