Thank goodness that I hid some pecans in the freezer this year! I had some orders for these delicious little tarts. Valentine's Day is a perfect time to splurge on these yummy bite size morsels!
One Pie Crust, cut into 2 inch rounds with a cookie cutter, 24 total
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecan pieces
2 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place pie rounds into a lightly greased mini muffin pan.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla and eggs. Beat well. Stir in pecans and butter. Spoon into pie rounds. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. With the tip of a sharp knife, pull the edge of a round up and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in a sealed container.
