Pecan Pie Tarts with maple butter glaze

So I have been working out hard to reach a particular goal, so why am I making pecan tarts. Because I can and a tart never hurt anybody, right? Right? Ya’ll don’t hear me out there ( in my southern baptist preacher voice) lol. Enjoy! I will be working out hard in the next few days.

These are so yummy.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted ( 1 Tbsp will for the phyllo dough cups you make)
  • 2 large egg
  • 3 Tbsp.  organic brown
  • 2 Tbsp. of Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Box of phyllo dough sheets

Instruction :

In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients except pecans. Mix well. Add in chopped pecans, and stir until combined.

In a regular muffin pan cut phyllo dough up into medium squares, lay in the muffin pans ,shape to the pan and dab with butter. I used about 3 sheets to make a nice sturdy container for the pecan mixture.  Fill the cups about 1/2 way up. They will rise.  Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes. Let cool and drizzle I drizzled the maple butter glaze over top each one and served.
