Bananas Foster Mini Pies

Ingredients
1
tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
egg
2
tablespoons cold water
1 1/2
1
medium banana, peeled and chopped (about 3/4 cup)
1/3
cup caramel-flavored ice cream topping
1/4
cup chopped pecans, toasted
1
tablespoon bourbon
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
tablespoon butter, melted
 
Powdered sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the 1/3 cup softened butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and salt. Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Add egg and the 2 tablespoons water; beat until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour. Shape dough into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. For filling, in a medium bowl, combine banana, caramel topping, pecans, bourbon, and cinnamon.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8 inch thick. Using a 4-inch round cutter, cut the dough into rounds, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place about 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center of each round. Brush edges of pastry circles with a little water. Fold the dough in half over filling and press edges with a fork to seal. Place pies on the prepared baking sheet. Brush pies with the 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  4. Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. If desired, sift powdered sugar over pies. Serve warm. Makes 12 to 15 pies.
