First Jennifer made them. Then Doodles. Now me. All of us loved them and, if you bake up a batch, you'll see why.
Chewy little bites of pecan pie goodness -- with nutty, buttery, and caramelized sugar notes -- delivered to your mouth in a tiny cake. Light yet satisfying, they're a perfect way to end a big meal when you want something small, simple and sweet.
