Baking for One: Pecan Pie rev. 1

This recipe makes two 4" diameter tarts.

Ok, so I haven't worked out the perfect pie-crust-for-one recipe yet. So sue me.


  • Take:
    • 1/4 c. Betty Crocker Pie Crust Mix
  • Add:
    • 1 t. cold water

Mix and then divide into two equal balls. Roll out and fit into your tart pans.

Bake at 450 F for 5 minutes.


  • Cream together:
    • 1 T. butter
    • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • Beat in:
    • 1 egg
  • Stir in:
    • 2 T. corn syrup
    • pinch vanilla sugar
    • scant pinch salt
  • Place in the pie shells:
    • 6 T. chopped pecans (3 T. each)

Pour half the filling into each shell.

Bake at 375 F for about 30 minutes.



I don't have any notes on this one. My next try about doubles the nuts, suggesting that I thought there weren't enough in this one. Other than that, it was probably ok.
