Southern Mini Pecan Pies Recipe

The more recipes that I put up here, the more you're going to see pecan recipes. The tastes of pecans is reason enough. Pecans are so tasty in fact, that two Apollo moon missions had them on board. But I have a different reason. In my front yard is a pecan tree that produced 95 pounds of pecans this year. It produces pecans every year. Not only do I send them out as Christmas gifts, but I make a lot of stuff from them.  This recipe is another Pecan Pie recipe.  The difference between that and the Yum Yum Pecan pie is mainly the brown sugar. It may not sound like much, but to a Pecan Pie aficionado, it's enough.  But there is something else about this cooking of this recipe you might like. 

I Got One Of Those Mini Pie Makers

To make this more interesting though, I thought about trying to make pecan pies like you see in the stores. Those little ones that are enough for one serving.  I had the pie maker, I had the pecans, and I had the time. So.. 


  • A package of the roll out pie crusts. 
  • 6 eggs, beat lightly 
  • 1 c. sugar 
  • 1 c. dark Karo syrup 
  • 1/4 lb. butter, melted 
  • 2 c. coarsely chopped pecans 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Place eggs, sugar and corn syrup in 2 quart bowl. Add melted butter. Mix well. Stir in pecans. Add salt and vanilla.
  2. Roll out the pie crusts and use the little circle cutter tool to cut the pie crusts to fit the machine. 
  3. Rub butter on the inside of the machines pie forms. 
  4. Press the pie crusts into the forms. 
  5. Turn the machine on and let it heat for about 5 minutes, with the crusts inside
  6. Pour enough of the pie mixture into the forms with the crusts to fill it 3/4 full.
  7. Let it cook for five minutes
  8. Turn off the machine and let them cool for another five.
  9. Take them out and devour them. 

  10. About Potato Chip Sandwich

    According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
