Easy Mini Pecan Pies

These Easy Mini Pecan Pies are packed full nutty and delicious flavor. This recipe can be easily made into a regular size pie.

Making Mini Pecan Pies

Melting the syrups and sugars together is essential to making a flavorful and well-incorporated pie.  By melting the ingredients together on the stovetop, it allows them to become one very flavorful syrup mixture.

After adding the vanilla in, the kitchen smells with the very familiar scent of homemade pecan pie.  You'll know when you're off to a great start!

You can easily make a regular-sized pie with this recipe.  Instead of breaking the pie crust dough into 6 balls, simply roll the dough into just one ball, flatten it out into a disc and refrigerate and proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Giving A Mini Pecan Pie as a Gift

These mini pecan pies are the perfect gift to give those who love the wonderful flavors of pecan pie.  They're easy to make and this recipe easily makes 6 pies.  If you are giving these as gifts I recommend making these pies in disposable pie pans such as these.

That way, if the syrups of these pies happen to seep out you don't have to worry about trying to pry the pie from metal tins and risk breaking your crust.  Sometimes, I tend to overfill my pies.  😉

After the pies have cooled, you can slide the pies into plastic treat bags and tie them off with a cute ribbon and name tag.  Everyone loves a tasty homemade treat as a gift!
