Chrissi's Cream Cheese Nut Cups (Mini Pecan Pies)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by DeSouter

My friend, Chrissi made these while on a girl's weekend and they were fantastic. Rich, delicious "crust" filled with just enough pecan filling so it's not the large mouthful of a pecan pie slice. Simple to make--this ones a real winner.

The problem I had with these was that the filling was to dry. the crust was buttery and flakey and perfect but the inside ended up chewey. I think perhaps adding some extra butter might help? Or corn syrup for some of the sugar? I'm sorry for the low review!
