    Thumbs up Mini Pecan Pies

    15 Mini phyllo dough shells
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
    1 large egg
    1/3 cup dark corn syrup
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon melted butter

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


    Place pecans on a foil-lined cookie sheet and bake for 5-8 minutes or until toasted and aromatic; Remove pecans from cookie sheet and set aside to cool. Place mini Fillo shells on cookie sheet.

    In a small mixing bowl, lightly beat the egg with a fork. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, vanilla, melted butter and toasted pecans. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of pecan mixture into each mini shell. Place cookie sheet with mini pies into oven and bake for 12 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
