Confession time. I don’t really like pecan pie. It’s sweet and gloppy and just too much…everything. Now, I’m sure you are all wondering why I made a pecan pie bite recipe. Well, here is the thing. I think these are a million times better. They are bite size (proven fact bite size food always tastes better) and not overly sweet. The nuts are simply glazed in sweetness instead of laying on top of a thick sweet layer. 

Oh and I’m sorta obsessed with these little phyllo cups. They bring a nice crunchy texture to the pie bites, more than any pie crust can bring to the party. Plus the chocolate drizzle just makes it even better. Anything drizzled in chocolate is delicious….am I right?

The sad news for the day is that today marks the end of Pie Week. I had such a delicious week sharing my pies and my fellow bloggers pies. It was a delicious week but sadly all good things must come to an end. Don’t worry though. I have lots more deliciousness coming your way 🙂

    yes please, missy! These look amazing. I never think to make mini pie bites only a big pie. Maybe I should do that this Thanksgiving!

    I’m definitely going through some serious pie withdrawal now that pie week is over!!

    I’m actually with you on the anti-pecan pie feelings…not that I dislike it, but it’s not my favorite. The chocolate drizzle could definitely win me over though.

    These look awesome! What do you use if you can’t find vanilla paste though?

    • nutmegnanny replied: — November 24th, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

      Hi Ashley! Vanilla extract will work just as well. The paste is similar to vanilla extract except it’s a bit thicker and is full of vanilla beans. Hope you enjoy the pie bites 🙂

    I’m not generally a big fan of pecan pie either, but add chocolate and now we’re talking! These are too cute!

    Thanks so much for all your work on pie week – it was seriously a blast 🙂

    Chocolate pecan pie and me is a dangerous combination. However, portion controlled, bite sized pieces is where it’s at! These look fantastic! Thank you so much for co-hosting pie week and for including me. 😀 Such a ‘sweet’ time!

    REVIEW (so hard to come by in food blogs): I couldn’t find mini phyllo shells, so I just bought the strips of phyllo dough and broke them into squares. I then placed a few in each cup of a cupcake pan and prepared as directed. They turned out great. The chocolate drizzle is what really made them. They’re not overly sweet (as pecan pie can be), and those who are not so much dessert people (there are a few in my family) can use less drizzle, while those who respect and appreciate the awesomeness that is chocolate can use more. Thus: 5/5 stars.

    These look amazing! And I love that you’ve taken away the hard part – the pie crust! I would make so many more pies if it weren’t for pie crust. This is definitely going on my T-giving to make list!

    Renee - Kudos Kitchen — November 14, 2014 at 9:11 am

    These look fantastic. I love that they’re little bites which are perfect after a big turkey dinner. I also love they they’re not too sweet. My kind of dessert indeed.
