Pecan pie bites
Nov 11, 2013
Pecan pie is great, but it's even better in bite-size form. Sweet pecan pie filling and crispy phyllo dough combine to make crunchy sweet bites.
Pecan pie is perfect for Thanksgiving. However, sometimes the task of making a whole pie can just be too much. Plus when you make pie in a two-bite size, it leaves room for lots more dessert sampling.
