Apple pecan pies from A Beautiful Mess



How cute are these little apple pies? These adorable sweet treats, courtesy of my fab friends at A Beautiful mess are simple to make and even better to eat! Just in time for the cool autumn air, this recipe will warm you right up.

Apple Pecan Pies, makes 4-5 servings.
  • 2-3 apples (any variety, but firmer apples that hold up well when baked work best)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
Pecan pie filling

In a pot, combine the butter, sugar, and corn syrup. Stir over medium heat until combined, then increase the heat to bring to a boil. Allow to boil (a low, steady boil) for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the pecans and vanilla extract. Let that cool while you prep the apples.

Once the apples are ready, go back to the filling. It should be cooler now. Stir in the egg and pour into each apple shell. I probably could have filled five shells, but I only did four and had a little filling left over. This will vary based on your apple size. 
Bake at 350°F for 35-38 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
