DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Make the dough: Finely grind pecans in a food processor; set aside. Put mascarpone and butter into bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until well blended. Add flour, ground pecans, and salt; mix just until dough comes together.
  • Roll dough into 16 one-inch balls, and press into bottoms and up sides of cups of mini-muffin tins.
  • Make the filling: Whisk the egg, sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, butter, and salt in a small bowl. Stir in toasted pecans. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons filling into each muffin cup.
  • Bake until crust begins to turn golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely in tins on wire rack. Store in single layers in airtight containers up to 3 days.
