Ingredients

Crust

  • 1/2 cup Challenge butter
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Pecan Filling

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light or dark corn syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 24 pecans halved
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Crust

  • Cream butter and cream cheese together.
  • Mix in flour and salt until dough forms.
  • Place dough on plastic wrap and form a log shape.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.

Filling

  • Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, egg, and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
  • Mix in salt and vanilla.
  • Stir in chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Remove crust from refrigerator. Cut the log in half, and then each half into halves again so you have four sections. Slice each section into three equal parts so you have a total of 12 individual crusts.
  • Press crusts into muffin tin working crust up the side of each well.
  • Divide filling mixture evenly among the twelve pies. Top with a pecan half.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until crusts are golden brown.
