This is a fantastic recipe for holiday celebrations!  Thanks!



The picture looks like you put them in a muffin tin... not just on a bakeing sheet.

That's because they're premade filo shells.



I couldn't find the small premade FILO shells at my grocery store, so I bought the FILO sheets and cut them into small squares and used a small size cup cake pan. Filled with the filling per the recipe and baked.

Took to neighbors for Thanksgiving and they LOVED them. Kept a few for hubby and myself, and I have to admit they were very good.

Making again for Christmas.

Thanks for a easy recipe.


I might make a few changes (real egg, butter, touch more vanilla), but I like this idea a lot.  I'm a huge pecan pie fan, but the sugar and butter amounts in a real pecan pie are unreal.  The family would probably die if I substituted these at a main holiday meal, but for another time of the year or a party, that could work!
