The only difference between these and a BIG pie is that these are PORTABLE! So you can easily pack them in lunches or send them home with leftovers instead of a crumbling slice of pie at Thanksgiving!

No Corn Syrup Mini Pecan Pies

This is a riff on my Popular Pecan Pie without Corn Syrup Recipe that everyone who tastes it absolutely loves! It’s got so much more flavor than a pie made with just flavorless sweet syrup. In fact, that’s why I call it old-fashioned, it’s like what pecan pie USED to taste like back before corn syrup became the go-to filler for them. Believe me, I’m old enough to know!!
