Delicious accidental discovery

While making various pie gifts in recent days, I have had some crust dough left over as pecan pie requires no top. In my family, we always use this leftover goodness to make pie crackers (literally, pie crust crackers). Yesterday, I also had a bit of leftover pecan pie filling -no pecans, just the sugary syrup- so I spread it on top of the pie crackers and baked until the glaze looked like hardened shellac. Let me tell you that this was a fortuitous occurrence, and I will now intentionally make these treats. They would be superb as an accompaniment to a dish of rum raisin ice cream or really any ice cream that has vanilla, pecans, cinnamon, etc in it but they are really good on their own too!
