  • 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.
