1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury)

⅓ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup corn syrup
⅛ teaspoon salt
optional – ¼ cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating
How to make Pecan Pie Cookies
Step 1: Ready the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Combine the butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt, and eggs in a large non-stick pan. Cook over medium-low heat on a stovetop just until thickened, Make sure to not dry it out, just slightly thickened and about a consistency of a pudding. Once thickened, remove from the heat. Set aside.
Step 3: Undo the dough and cut into circles using a 3-inch cookie cutter. Then, gently fold the circles about 1/8 to 1/4-inch up on the edges.
Step 4: Then, put a tablespoon of the pecan mixture into the circles.
Step 5: Transfer the filled circles onto a parchment-lined pan.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 8 minutes or until the filling is just set. Once set, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
Step 7: In a small Ziploc bag, put the chocolate chips and microwave for 15 seconds or until almost melted. Cut a little the corner of the bag and drizzle the almost melted chocolate over the cooled cookies. Let them cool.
