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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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