About Cuero Pecan House

Welcome to the Cuero Pecan House – your one stop shop for delicious homemade treats and of course featuring the Texas state nut, the pecan. Our friendly staff is here to assist you in finding the perfect treat for yourself or a gift for another. 

A little more about us - The Pecan House opened their doors in the 1960 by J. F. Elder and was primarily a seasonal operation. In 2003 we (Annette and Erwin Rath) decided to expand to stay open year round and expanded our offerings. And, our tasty specialty products, as well as our fresh pecans, have been keeping the locals (and the visitors to town) quite happy! 

Featuring freshly seasoned pecans, as well as cakes, cookies, pies, gourmet-to-go casseroles, gift baskets, local jams, pecan oil and other area specialties, we think and hope you agree that it’s truly a slice of heaven located in the heart of downtown Cuero.

We’d love to see you! We are located next to the railroad tracks at 104 W. South Railroad St. You can also place an order at 361-275-5632.

Mini Snickers Cheesecake Bites

Yield: 32 cupcakes

Ingredients:

For the crust:

2 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

6 tbsp. Butter, melted

3 tbsp. sugar

For the filling:

2 lbs. cream cheese, at room temperature

1½ cups sugar

Pinch of salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 large eggs, at room temperature

 

For the topping:

Caramel sauce

Chocolate sauce

Snickers bars, cut up into small pieces

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325˚ F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Stir together with a fork until well blended and all the dry ingredients are moistened. Press 1 tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner. (Use a small drinking glass, like a sippy cup, to press crumbs down.) Bake until just set, 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

To make the cheesecake, beat the cream cheese on medium-high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy. Blend in the sugar until smooth. Mix in the salt and vanilla. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

To assemble, spoon 3 tablespoons of the cheesecake batter over the crust in each cupcake liner.

Bake until the filling is set, about 22 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking. (They will look quite puffed initially but will return to normal quickly.) Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool to room temperature. Transfer to the refrigerator and let chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

When you are ready to eat, just drizzle cheesecakes with caramel and chocolate syrup and top with cut up pieces of Snickers.
