Easy Mini Pecan Tarts

Easy Mini Pecan Tarts

OK - this is not really healthy - but you have to enjoy every so often right?  So we ended up with an extra package of Athens Mini Filo Shells and wanted to do something fun.  We found a great recipe for Mini Phyllo Pecan Tarts on the Athens Foods site - and made it a little bit healthier.  Well...a little healthier....its all good right?

Ingredients (makes 15 mini tarts)

1 egg
1 tbsp Butter, melted
1 tbsp Brown sugar
2 tbsp Light corn syrup
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp Pecans, chopped (total of 10 tbsp)
1 package (15 count) Athens® Mini Fillo Shells

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. While one egg in a bowl.  Add butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Mix thoroughly.  Stir in chopped pecans.
3. Place parchment paper on the baking sheet.  Arrange mini shells on a baking sheet. Fill mini shells with one rounded teaspoon of pecan mixture.
4. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool before serving.
