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

  • 2Spoon about 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of finely chopped pecans into each miniature crust.
  • 3Combine 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.
