Looking for an easy holiday dessert recipe that will impress your guests? Pecan Pie Cups are the answer!
These mini pies are adorable and delicious. They're ideal for a Thanksgiving party or as a dessert for your holiday meal. To make these delectable treats, simply follow the recipe below.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
Make the pie dough a 12” circle on a lightly floured work surface. Slice 12 circles from the dough with a 3” cookie cutter (or a glass).
Put one piece of dough in each muffin cavity of a 12-count muffin pan, allowing it to come up the sides slightly (you may need to stretch the dough just a bit).
- Store the muffin pan in the refrigerator.
Thoroughly combine the corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Then, fold the chopped pecans.
- Remove the muffin pan from the refrigerator. Distribute the filling (about 1 tablespoon.) evenly among the 12 muffin cavities, taking care not to let the pecan pie filling overflow the edges of the dough.
- Bake for about 25 to 27 minutes until the filling is set at 350 °F. Remove the pan from the oven to allow it to cool down for about 10 minutes.
Transfer the mini pecan pies from the muffin pan to a wire rack and set them aside to cool completely.
Mini pecan pie cups may be placed in a freezer for 2 to 3 months in a container or freezer bag. Thaw them overnight in the refrigerator. After defrosting, let them sit at room temperature before serving.
