Ground cinnamon in the cream cheese pastry makes these petite pies something to write home about.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small mixing bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until blended. Stir in pecans. Spoon filling evenly into Cinnamon Pastry Shells.

  2. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until set. Cool slightly. Remove from pans, and cool completely on a wire rack.
