Maple Spiced Pecan Pie Bites

Thanksgiving is only less than a few weeks away and I am excited to share some of my Thanksgiving dishes and desserts.I am starting with these pecan bites that I had made once before for one my Christmas parties they were a hit.They are easy to make and made with maple syrup instead of corn syrup I am not a fan .I added a cinnamon and ground ginger to add a little extra flavor.I made them with a store bought crust to make things easier if you prefer to make your own  crust that is fine too.
