What are Mini Pecan Pies? Mini pecan pies are just what they sound like – smaller versions of the traditional pecan pie. They’re made with the same delicious mix of chopped pecans, corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, and a splash of vanilla extract, all wrapped up in a flaky pie crust.
1. Sprinkle flour over a clean countertop and then roll out the pie crust. Cut out 15 circles using a round cutter. These circles should be around 3 inches in diameter. 2. Place the liners in each well of the muffin tin.
3. Next, gently press each dough circle into the lined cups to create a shell. Afterward, refrigerate the tin. 4. Whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, egg, corn syrup and vanilla extract in a bowl until well combined.
