Debbie's notes for this recipe:
Being in south Georgia, we love our pecans. These mini pecan pie tarts are so easy and so good. They are gone as fast as I make a batch.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Prepare a lightly floured work surface and lightly dust one of the pie crusts after you roll it onto your surface, roll to make it slightly thinner. Cut 3 inch circles and fit each one into the cups of the mini muffin tin. The pie mixture will make about 36 mini tarts total. You won't use quite all of both crusts in the box.
Beat the egg and sugar well. Add the karo and melted butter, beat well, mix in the vanilla, then fold in the ground nuts. Fill each little tart shell about 3/4 full. Bake in a 350 oven for about 18 minutes. The crust will be golden brown when done. Don't over bake or the pies will be tough.

They look delectable, and the mini is great so I can portion them into small treats...

I made a batch of these for a craft show this past Saturday and sold out right time I will make a double batch...

I've made these every Christmas for years, but the recipe I have doesn't call for karo syrup. My tarts were never as creamy as I prefer, so I was thrilled to see this recipe! My first batch is in the oven right now...I can't wait to bite into one and discover that creamy texture just like a really great pecan pie...yummmm....
Merry Christmas fellow In a Pinchers!
