  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. From 1 box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box, unroll 1 crust on work surface. Use 3-inch round cutter to cut 8 rounds, and place on outsides of cups of upside-down nonstick mini muffin pan, skipping every other one. Repeat with second crust.
  • 2
    Bake about 8 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes; remove shells from pan to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 3
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup cornstarch and 1 1/4 cups water. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon salted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 1/2 cups pecan halves, chopped. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 4
    Fill each shell with cooled pecan mixture; top each with pecan half. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and serve within 3 days.

Expert Tips

  • Add up to 1/2 cup more pecan halves, chopped, for a nuttier pie.
  • To make up to 20 tarts, reroll scraps of pie dough to thin layer, and cut more rounds.

More About This Recipe
  • If you ever have leftovers (which won’t be often!) there are a few rules to store pies like pecan pie. You can keep these minis or a regular-size pecan pie in the fridge for up to four days. These pies will also freeze, but the texture of the filling and crust won’t always hold up quite like they do fresh out of the oven. To freeze, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil, freeze for up to two months and thaw in the fridge before baking to reheat. You can find storage instructions for every type of pie in our handy how to make pie article. We love making pie in mini form, but if you’re looking for even more ways to make pecan pie, we have a whole lot of delicious recipes for you to choose from.
