This recipe comes via Sheryl B's blog, Lady Behind the Curtain. I saw these mini pecan pie pops on Sheryl's Father's Day Dessert Table and had to ask her if I could post the recipe. How amazing would these be for your July 4th barbecue!
That’s right pie ON A STICK! It seems that everything is going on a stick. So why not a pie? It may look intimidating but it is a lot easier then you think and your guests are going to go GAGA (not the Lady kind) over them.
PECAN PIE POP RECIPE
Pastry Dough Ingredients
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1-3 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/4 cups flour
Beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy mix in flour if needed add enough water to make the pastry cling together. Chill for 1 hour.
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Mix together egg, egg yolk, corn syrup, brown sugar, butter and vanilla.
To make tarts: Tear off a piece of dough and press into small tart pan. Spoon filling into tart pan and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes or until set. Once tarts are cooled take a tooth pick and run it around the edge to loosen.
Cut a slit in the side of the tart and slide in the 8-in. Lollipop stick until you feel the other side. DO NOT go thru. NOTE: if you don’t have tart pans then use a muffin tin and only go up the sides 1-in.
Makes approximately 8 tarts.
