Mom's Mini Pecan Pies

Debbie W


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
