Pecan Pie Cookies are a quick and easy alternative to pecan pie! Pecan Pie Cookies are made of a shortbread cookie with pecan pie filling and a maple glaze frosting.


    Cookie Ingredients
    3/4 cup shortening
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 egg or its equivalent
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking powder

    Filling Ingredients
    1 cup finely chopped pecans
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/4 cup vegan whipped cream

    Maple Frosting
    1 cup powdered sugar
