These Pecan Pie Cookie Cups have a sweet pecan pie filling baked inside of a sugar cookie crust to create the perfect mini pecan pie dessert for your next holiday party!
It’s no secret that pecan pie is at the top of my dessert list. Ever since I baked my first pecan pie and pulled it from the oven, I’ve been in love!
I make a killer chocolate chip pecan pie for almost every winter holiday and my bourbon pecan pie will knock your socks right off your feet.
So what’s a girl to do when she’s trying to make more pecan pie desserts for the holidays without making yet another pecan pie? She makes pecan pie cookie cups!
I started making cookie cups back when we first got married and Thomas deployed to Iraq. They were easy cookies that were quick to make and easy to ship. I had to make sure that whatever I was sending overseas would make the trip in tact. Well cookies cups did and the guys loved them.
Back then I just made them with store bought dough and chocolate chip centers but they were still fantastic.
Now-a-days I’ve changed it up a bit. Back in the summer I worked on my cookie making skills and rolled some perfect blueberry pie sugar cookie cups out of my kitchen! Now that we’re into the Holiday season I thought that I should add a bit of holiday flavor to them.
Tada! Pecan Pie Cookie Cups were born!
The crusts of these pies are made from a sugar easy sugar cookie dough. They’re filled to the top with my homemade pecan pie filling which is amazing!
After being filled. the Pecan Pie Cookies cups are topped with a single pecan before being baked!
I can’t think of a more perfect Holiday Dessert! These cookie pies are pretty and festive for Christmas Plus they’re easy to pick up and walk around with at a holiday party!!
