The Pecan Pie is a classic warming pudding and these mini versions are certainly no exception. Buttery pastry filled with caramelised pecan nuts and a hint of maple syrup - does it get any better? Well, maybe if you serve with a scoop of creamy maple ice cream...

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c (160°c fan/gas mark 4) and place the mini pastry tartlet cases onto a baking tray.

  2. To make the filling: heat the maple syrup, butter, sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute, pour into a bowl to help it cool quickly, stir in the chopped pecans and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.

  3. Mix the cooled syrup with the eggs. Pour into the pastry cases, placing a pecan half on top of each tartlet. place in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the filling is just set in the middle (it will continue to cook as it cools down). Serve slightly warm or leave to cool before serving.

  4. Serve with a scoop of maple ice cream.

    These maple pecan pies are a real treat - a quick & simple dessert that tastes delicious. I've made it a few times now with different maple syrups and it's definitely worth using the Billington's Very Dark Maple as it gives a delicious caramelised flavour, which really works with the pecan nuts.
