  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Combine flour, 3/4 cup coconut oil, and cream cheese together in a bowl, form into 36 balls. Press each ball into the cup of a miniature muffin tin, creating small crusts.

  3. Melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add pecans, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract, stir until filling is evenly combined. Fill each crust 3/4-full with filling.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until filling puffs up, about 12 minutes.

Recipe Note

Nut cups are like mini pecan pies, but much easier and travel like a cookie. Substitute butter for the coconut oil if desired. Any variety of nut can be used in place of the pecans.
