Creating Pecan Magic:

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease eight 3-inch tart tins to prepare them for the pecan magic ahead.
  • Roll out the pastry and cut eight 5-inch circles. Gently place these pastry circles into the prepared tart tins, forming the foundation for your delicious pecan tarts.
    The Sweet Symphony: In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, beaten eggs, dark corn syrup, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until all the ingredients come together in a sweet symphony of flavors.
  • Stir in the chopped pecans, infusing the filling with their rich, nutty essence. This is where the pecan tarts truly come to life.
  • Baking Elegance: Spoon the luscious pecan filling into each pastry-lined tart tin, ensuring they are filled to about 3/4 full. Each tart is a masterpiece waiting to be baked.
  • Place your creations into the preheated oven and let them bake until the pastry turns golden brown and the filling sets, which usually takes around 30 to 35 minutes.
