Mini Thanksgiving, Continued: Pecan Pie

A Thanksgiving feast wouldn't be complete without dessert. That goes for a mini-Thanksgiving dinner too. Last week, we gave you the recipe for the main course of a mini-feast.

Miniature pecan pies will put the finishing touch on your meal. They may also help you control the holiday calories, assuming you don't eat them all yourself.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon margarine

The rest of the recipe, after the jump.

Pre-heat over to 350 degrees. For the pastry, mix cream cheese and butter together until creamy. Add flour and mix. Roll into a large ball and chill.

For the filling, mix egg, brown sugar, vanilla, margarine and pecans in a large bowl.

Divide pastry dough into 24 small balls. Place in pan and spread dough with thumb. Add 1 teaspoon of filling to each.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.
