Whipped cream

How To Make Homemade Pie Crust

Making your own pie crust is not as complicated as you may think. You need only a few ingredients:  all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, unsalted butter and ice water. I have everything you need right here.

How To Make This Pecan Pie Bites From Scratch

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour (or use nonstick cooking spray) a mini-muffin pan. Set aside.

Cut The Pie Crust

You can make your own pie crust or use store-bought crust.
Roll the dough or pie crust out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin.
Using a round cookie or biscuit cutter (approximately 3 inches diameter) cut at least 24 rounds out ( or 12 rounds of each pie crust, if using store bought). Carefully press each round into the mini-muffin pan. Use your fingers to round the ends into a pie crust. Brush egg wash from one egg to the top edges of each pie. Sprinkle a small amount of chopped pecans into each pie crust.

Mix Up The Filling

Mixing up the filling couldn’t be easier! Mix corn syrup, eggs, both sugars, butter and vanilla using a spoon or a rubber spatula and then stir pecans in. Corn syrup is a must when making these pies if you want the right result.  
Carefully pour about 2 tablespoons of the syrup into each pie crust. Do not fill past the edge of the pie crusts. The filling will bubble and rise while baking and you want to avoid it spilling over if possible because it can make a huge mess. This will make them stick when you go to take them out.

Bake

Bake for about 22-25 minutes. If the tops begin to brown too quickly after about 15 minutes, you can cover the top with tin foil for the remaining time. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

Carefully remove from the muffin tin, if you need use a butter knife to slide along the side of the pies to loosen. Give a little twist and pull them out, and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Top with dollops of whipped cream before serving, if desired, but totally recommended Enjoy!

How To Store Pecan Pie Bites

You can store this Pecan Pie Bites in airtight container in a fridge for several days. They also freeze well if you have some leftovers. Or you can make them ahead of time and freeze so your party preparation will be faster. Just leave them at room temperature to defrost before you put whipped cream topping.

Tips:

  • Make sure to grease the muffin pan well.
  • Don’t over-fill the pies, the filling will bubble and rise and may spill over.
  • If you don’t have cookie cutter the glass or something similar will work as well.
  • The dough should come up the sides of every muffin cavity, so you may have to stretch each piece of dough a bit.
  • If the tops of pies begin to brown too quickly (while baking about 15 minutes), you can cover the top with tin foil for the remaining time.
