  • Mini Muffin Tin


  • Homemade All Butter Pie Crust or 2 pre-made ready to roll pie crusts
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans coarsely chopped, divided
  • egg wash from one egg
  • Whipped cream if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour (or use nonstick cooking spray) a mini-muffin pan. Set aside. 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 diamater) 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 corn syrup, eggs, both sugars, butter and vanilla using a spoon or a rubber spatula. Stir in pecans.
  • 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. This will make them stick when you go to take them out.
  • 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.
