Saw this recipe on Facebook and had to hack it gluten free! Yum! Remember moderation is always best!
1 prepared gluten free single pie crust (homemade or purchased. I like Wholly Wholesome gfree crust)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup brown rice syrup (you can use corn syrup if you are not cross reactive to corn)
2 pasture eggs
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large non-stick pan, combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, rice syrup, salt and eggs.
Cook on the stove top over medium-low heat just until thickened.
(You don’t want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding).
Remove from heat and set aside.
Unroll dough and using a 3 inch cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about ⅛-1/4" up on the edges.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.
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.
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.
Happy Fall Yal'L!
