RECIPE: Mini Pecan Pie Pops

by Jillian Leslie on

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.


Pastry Dough Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-3 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • Water
Pastry Dough Directions

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.

Filling Ingredients

  • 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
Filling Directions

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.

And seriously, how cool would these pecan pie pops look on your next dessert table.

    I made apple pie pops a few months ago (in honor of 'Pi Day' lol) & they tirned out great! I just used a round cookie cutter though to cut the dough & inserted the sticks before cooking. Super-easy! :o)
