    Servings and Ingredients

    1 packet(s) refrigerated Hy-Vee pie dough, at room temperature
    1 large egg
    ¾ c. packed light brown sugar
    1 tbsp. melted butter
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    fine salt
    ½ c. pecans, finely chopped
    Bourbon Cream
    1 c. heavy cream
    2 tbsp. powdered sugar
    1 tbsp. bourbon
    1 tsp. vanilla
    ½ c. caramel sauce, warmed
    20 candied pecans


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 24-cup mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.
    2. Using a 2-inch-round cutter, cut out 20 discs from the pie dough. Place each disc in the greased mini muffin tin. Reserve scraps for another use or discard.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla and salt until smooth. Set aside.
    4. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the pecans into each muffin cup. Fill each cup with the egg mixture until evenly distributed, about 1/2 tablespoon in each.
    5. Bake until the filling is set and crusts are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, and remove from the muffin pan.
    6. In a mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar, bourbon and vanilla and whip until stiff peaks form.
    7. Serve tassies with a drizzle of caramel sauce, a dollop of whipped cream and a candied pecan.
