Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Pecan Pie Cookie Cups

Pumpkin Spice Pecan Cookie Cups FEATURED from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

Do you love pecan pie?

I do but sometimes making a whole pie is just too much.  Today I'm sharing an easy recipe for Pumpkin Spice Pecan Pie Cookie Cups with you that is going to become your favorite recipe to make for the holidays.  

Yes, I said pumpkin spice and pecan pie together in a cookie cup.  Delicious and so incredibly easy!  I know your family is going to love this yummy dessert and you're going to love how easy it is to bake...especially if you're like me, sometimes too busy to bake. 

Do you love baking for the holidays? I do.  And for years have enjoyed baking quite a few different recipes for our family and to give as gifts to our neighbors and friends.  Last year was a different story.  I hardly did any baking.  I was just too busy, which is why I'm so happy I tried these cookie mix packages! 

I've tried a few of these Betty Crocker Cookie Mix packages and they are easy and delicious.  I know they're going to help me this holiday season be able to make delicious cookies for my family and friends.  

Why not purchase a few to have on hand during the holidays?  You can find a lot of different flavors; chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar and my favorite pumpkin spice.  I've made the pumpkin spice cookies a few times already.  Easy and delicious!

Pumpkin Spice Pecan Pie Cookie Cups

All the taste of Fall are in these pumpkin spice pecan cookie cups that start out with a packaged cookie mix.


For the Cookie Cups
  • 1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup butter; softened
  • 1 egg
For the Pecan Pie Filling
  • 1 egg; beaten
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar; packed
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the Pecan Pie Filling; set aside while you bake the cookie cups.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix with the flour, egg and softened butter.
  3. Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls and place in a mini muffin tin that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Make an indentation in the center of each cookie ball to form a cup.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove cookie cups from oven and reshape the indentations. You can use the back of a wooden spoon or the tool I share above works great. Do not use your thumb! The dough is very hot.
  7. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of the pecan pie filling into each cookie cup.
  8. Bake for another 8 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before running a knife around the edge of each cookie cup to loosen. Continue to cool in the pan for another 30 minutes before removing to make sure the cookie cups do not fall apart.
