Individual Pecan Pies

Pecan Pie

I have been craving pecan pie for a while now. I’ve never actually made one and I’ve only eaten it once before, and that was bought at my local market. So, I decided to make one at home and I loved this recipe.

It was not as sweet as the one I ate before. My husband told me that it wasn’t in fact as sweet as traditional pecan pie, which was perfect for me as I don’t like very sweet deserts. It’s great because you can eat it without feeling sick from sugar.

Enjoy!

  • 1 basic pie dough homemade or store bought
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons of butter, melted

Individual Pecan Pie

Directions

  1. Prepare the filling:
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, regular sugar, salt, corn syrup and vanilla until blended. Whisk in the melted butter. Stir in the pecans.
  3. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, roll out the pie dough. Make circles and place in individual, non stick molds. Make little holes at the bottom with a fork. Pour the filling into the pie shells.
  4. Preheat an oven to 350°F.
  5. Bake the pies until the filling is set but is still slightly soft in the center, 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool slightly. Top each with a dollop of whipped cream and serve.

    I adore pecan but pecan pies, although wonderful are too sweet for my taste; so I like the adjustments you made to make it less sweet and I also love the bite-size portions!

    This looks really mouthwatering. I so love pecan nuts, and my kids are crazy about pies, so this recipe of yours will definitely be a sure hit. I think this will be a great bonding activity for my 3 kids, they all love helping out in the kitchen especially when I’m making pies. And they really love it whenever we take on a new recipe. :)

    I’ve only discovered pecans after I started blogging and they have become my favourite. They are a little bit expensive but I shall definitely try this pie,

    The perfect size to satisfy a craving and to avoid that second slice!! So sweet and so delicious looking. I love nut pies and caramel and pecans and all things mini – so – you blew me away with this one….
    YUYMMMMMERS!

    I love your baking pans, Erica!
    And I never met a pecan pie I didn’t love. Also never heard of one that wasn’t too sweet either. Can’t wait to try this out!

    what a cute idea! bonus–you don’t have to worry about other people bringing their knives in and butchering your pie–they can butcher their own! :)
