Maple Pecan Tarts
Maple Pecan Tarts (makes 12 big tarts)
You will need:
1 jumbo muffin tin (each top 3 3/4" across)
Pie pastry (amount that would make 3 9" pie shells)
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350F; middle rack
Roll out pie pastry and put into muffin tins. Make the rims a bit higher as the pastry will shrink as it cooks. Put pecan halves into the shells, about 5-6 in each
Whisk together syrup, sugar and maple syrup, add beaten eggs. Whisk in butter and sat, and vanilla extract.
Put about 3 tbsp. of filling into each shell. Bake for about 35 minutes, check to make sure the pecans are not burning.
Cool for about 5 minutes, then carefully remove.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!
