Mini Caramel Pecan Pies
1 Package , Gluten Free Caramels
1 Cup Pecan halves
Ingredients for Crust
¼ cup oil
4 0z. Cream cheese ( I use Philadelphia cream cheese)
2/3 Cup Gluten Free Flour ( I like Betty Crocker, or Better Batter)
1/3 Cup Gluten Free Corn Starch
Place all ingredients for Crust in food processor on high until blended. Place dough in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. It just makes dough easier to work with. (You can leave this in the fridge overnight if it is sealed).
Heat oven to 350* F.
When dough is cooled line mini muffin pan with paper liners. Flour your hands with a small amount of GF Flour and dip out a small ball of dough ( about a 1 inch ball) and roll with your hands to make it firm. Place one ball of dough into each paper cup and using your thumb or a floured dough plunger to push an indention into each ball making a mini pie crust. Make sure dough comes up the sides and to the top of the paper liners. When you have finished all of the mini pie crusts place muffin pan into oven. Bake for 14-15 minutes or until crusts are baked through and starting to brown around the edges. This should make 20- 24 mini pie crusts.
When pie crusts are done remove from oven, while they are still hot, place a pecan half into the bottom of the pie shell, add a caramel to each,( caramels will melt down into pie shell) then top with another pecan. Let cool and serve! Enjoy!
