One 15-piece box frozen Athens Mini Fillo Shells
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
3 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1/2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel and Brown), room temperature
1 drop vanilla extract
1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans, divided
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray, and arrange shells on the baking sheet. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine egg substitute, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix well.
Stir in 2 tbsp. chopped pecans. Evenly distribute the mixture among the fillo shells.
Evenly top shells with remaining 2 tbsp. chopped pecans, a little less than 1/2 tsp. per shell.
Bake in the oven until edges are crisp, 15 - 18 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before serving. If you like, top each piece with a squirt of Fat Free Reddi-wip. Enjoy!
