Mini Pecan Pie#Fantasticalfood

This classic Mini Pecan Pie has all the flavors you love in a pecan pie. 

This pie crust is different from what I usually make, its buttery shortbread crust that tastes really good!

Though this is a decadent mini pecan pie it's too sweet and rich to eat it alone. It contains too many calories but all flavors you will love in a pecan pie. 
I baked this mini pecan pie 5-inch deep baking dish with a depth of 1.1/2 inch. For this pie you require a deep dish, since the filling may tend to spill while baking. 
When it just out of the oven it is puffed up but like a souffle, it deflates as it cools.
For the Shortbread Crust 
50 Grams Butter
80 Grams All Purpose Flour
1½ Tablespoons Corn Flour 
1½ Tablespoons Caster Sugar 
A Pinch of Salt
For the Filling 
¼ Cup Light Corn syrup
1 Egg 
¼ Cup Sugar
A Pinch Salt

1 Teaspoon Molasses ** see notes
1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter - softened
½  Teaspoon Vanilla essence
1/3 Cup Heaped Pecans

For the Shortbread Crust 
In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
Add flour, cornstarch and salt,  mix until combined.  Press dough onto bottom of lightly greased 5-inch deep baking dish and refrigerator it for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
In the meantime preheat oven to 170°C. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light golden. Then let it cool completely. I baked this crust a day before, next day baked it with the filling.

For the Filling 
Mix corn syrup, egg, sugar, salt, butter and vanilla in a bowl using a spoon.   Stir in the pecans.  Pour filling  in the cooled shortbread crust. 
Bake on center rack of oven for 35 minutes.
Remove from oven and let pie cool on wire rack for a 3 hours.

Enjoy this as a wonderful dessert, its sweet, has a crunch because of the pecan and mostly of all a buttery crust.
yum yum... 
My Notes
Since  I,did not have dark corn syrup add the molasses. If you use dark corn syrup then do not add molasses.

  5. I am loving all these adorable little pecan pies. I think that seems so much more appetizing than a big ole one. I love sweets but I also agree that it can be a little much with pecan pie!
