My two special touches are the addition of Kentucky Bourbon and crispy Phyllo Tarts instead of mini pie shells.

These bite size pecan pies are always a hit at my parties!
My secret ingredient! Bourbon! Add 1-2 teaspoons for a delicious flavor.
Mini filo shells are such a fantastic ingredient to keep stocked in your freezer!
They are crispy phyllo dough shells that you can use for bite size desserts and appetizers.
I like to use chopped pecans because I like larger chunks of pecans
It doesn’t take much to fill up the phyllo shells. About a tablespoon or so.
So much flavor in one bite!
