Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Pecan Pie Puffs

I try to always keep some puffed pastry in my freezer because you never know when you might have a snack emergency. These little guys turned out so yummy! And easy? Than pie! Hehe... IT Guy loved these and I loved them because of how simple they were to throw together. I could throw a couple of these in his lunch and he could eat them at room temp or reheat them in the microwave. Add one of these to a bowl of vanilla ice cream and you’re good to go!!

Pecan Pie Puffs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter ~ melted
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 sheet of puff pastry
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Unfold the pastry and cut it into 12 equal squares.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and press 1 square of pastry into each cup.
In a small bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar and melted butter.
Divide the pecan mixture equally between the cups.
Bake the puffs for about 10 - 15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
Remove to a wire rack and cool to room temperature.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

How about we make some puffs??

Stir together the melted butter, 
brown sugar, and pecans.

Cut the pastry into 12 pieces.

Add the pastry to the muffin tin then 
add the pecan mixture into each cup.

Cook until golden brown.

Let's eat!
