My Mom has made these for years and it's always a favorite.

**I have adjusted this recipe again on 11/24/11, as the filling was still making too much in relation to the dough **

How to Make Miniature Pecan Pies

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix crust ingredients together. Form them into small balls. Using a mini-muffin pan, drop balls into muffin tins and then using your thumb, press down, creating indentations for the filling.
  2. Spoon about 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of finely chopped pecans into each miniature crust.
  3. Combine eggs, vanilla, karo syrup, butter, sugar, brown sugar and lemon flavor (all filling ingredients except the pecans). Pour filling mixture over pecans so that each crust is about 3/4 full.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
