If you still haven’t decided on a dessert to make for Turkey Day tomorrow, and/or you are crunched for time over the next 24 hours, I am here to save the day with a recipe I stole this weekend from Skinnytaste. These mini pecan pie phyllo tarts only took me 10 minutes to prep and 10-15 minutes to bake when I made them on Sunday for Friendsgiving. They are super easy, they have WAY fewer calories than a full slice of pecan pie (68 cals each), but they still give you that sweet taste you crave in a dessert. Enjoy!

Makes 15 mini tarts

Athens Foods has a similar recipe up on their website that you could use too!
Anyone cooking or baking for Thanksgiving this year? What are you making?
Last year I baked these turkey cupcakes (decorated like turkeys, not cupcakes made from turkey meat – gross!), and this year I am planning to bake mini maple cupcakes to bring with me to Tim’s aunt’s house.
I may catch you guys later, but if not… I hope to see you in my “Turkey Time & Tone” class tomorrow morning at 9am! Come get fit before your feast!
…I am a loser.
