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.
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
