Wicked Little Pecan Pies

Wicked Little Pecan Pies

Two pies worth of pie crust
2 c. pecans

1 c. brown sugar
1 c. corn syrup*
4 T. melted butter
3 eggs
1/4 c. cream
mix all together until it is an unbelievably sticky mess.
Roll out pie crust dough and cut with a biscuit cutter, carefully press circles of crust down into a mini muffin tin, drop three shelled pecans into each one, pour a little of the filling into each one.
Bake 350 for 20 minutes. Repeat.

*I know, I know, but I was out of Lyle's Golden Syrup which no one around here sells, that's my excuse, and besides, corn syrup TASTES so clean and sweet. And if you believe the ridiculous corn syrup lobby commercials, there's absolutely nothing to be afraid of- it's just CORN!
