Pecan Pie Cookies

A co worker posted these on FB back in October and I asked if this was a hint that she wanted me to make them for work.  Her reply "hell yes".  I am not a fan of pecan pie because I think it's way to sweet but there were good.  Maybe because it's just a bite or two.  I doubled the recipe because it said it only made 12 cookies, well that would never be enough for the crew at work, they've been know to eat 4 dozen.  :)

1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury) 
2 tablespoons butter, melted 
½ cup pecans, chopped 
⅓ cup packed brown sugar 
¼ cup corn syrup 
2 eggs 
⅛ teaspoon salt 
Optional ¼ cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating 

Instructions 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 2. Combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs. While constantly stirring, cook on the stove top over medium­low heat just until thickened. (You don't want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding). Remove from heat and set aside. 3. Unroll dough and using a 3" cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about ⅛­1/4" up on the edges. 4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle. 5. Place on a parchment lined pan (it's important to line it) and bake 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. 6. Place chocolate chips in a small Ziploc bag (use brand name, the store brands tend to leak). Microwave about 15 seconds or until mostly melted. Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over the cookies. Cool until set

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week and Always Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things You L♥ve.
