  • 1/2
    cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2
    teaspoon vanilla

Dip

  • 1
    package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2
    cup powdered sugar
  • 1

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. In small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 2
    Unroll first pie crust on work surface; roll into 12-inch round. Using 2 1/2- to 3-inch leaf or desired shape cookie cutter, cut 15 leaves from pie crust, rerolling dough scraps if needed. Repeat rolling and cutting with second pie crust.
  • 3
    Place leaves 1 inch apart onto ungreased large cookie sheets. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  • 4
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  • 5
    In 2-quart saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is bubbling and sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low; carefully stir in whipping cream, vanilla and salt. Increase heat to medium; heat to simmering, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Stir in pecans; cool mixture 30 minutes.
  • 6
    In large bowl, mix cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in whipped topping until mixed well. Spread into bottom of 9-inch pie plate; top with cooled pecan mixture. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with pie crust dippers.

  • To toast pecans: Place pecans in even layer on rimmed baking sheet; bake at 350°F 5 to 8 minutes, stirring halfway through bake time, until browned and toasted.
  • For best results, bake pie crust dippers in center of oven one cookie sheet at a time.
  • Get the kids in the kitchen, and have them help cut the pie crust into leaf-shaped dippers! Swap the leaf-shaped cookie cutters for your own favorite shapes, if desired.
  • Serve this dip as a sweet appetizer or fuss-free dessert for your next holiday party.
