Pecan Pie Slices

SONY DSCA must for anyone who loves pecan pie!  Indulgent guilt-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free bite size slices of pecan pie heaven.  The perfect guilt-free treat to serve when you have friends round for coffee.

I have combined and adapted a few different recipes I have found online and in books to create this version of the Pecan Pie Slices and I think this is the perfect recipe but I am always looking to improve my recipes so please leave feedback if you have any suggestions.
