20(ish)--- Pecan Pie Tartlets

Thanksgiving dessert recipe trial #3! These are miniature pecan oatmeal pies! I have never worked with phyllo dough before-- it is so easy!

These are certainly healthier than a slice of pecan pie. But, still not an EVERYDAY food! The oats add a bit of fiber, and we are forgoing the buttery crust.....

Pecan Pie Tartlets
Serves 12

6 sheets phyllo dough
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup honey
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, beaten
1 egg white, beaten
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a cutting board and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Repeat with two additional layers. Using a knife, cut dough into six even 2 1/2 - 3" squares. Place one square into one cup of a muffin tin, prepared with cooking spray. Repeat for each cup. Repeat process for additional three layers of phyllo dough and six additional muffin cups.

Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Spoon 2 Tbsp batter into each shell. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
