Mini Maple Pecan Pies

Here's the Dish

If you can’t imagine your Thanksgiving holiday without pecan pie, but don’t want to have a meal’s worth of calories for just one slice of pie, then these Mini Maple Pecan Pies are the perfect dessert for you! The phyllo tartlets closely resemble the taste of a buttery pie crust, and makes for a beautiful presentation! When paired with the toasted pecans and the sweetness of maple syrup, you have yourself the ‘perfect’ mini pecan pie! I don’t know about you, but a 40 calorie pie sounds great to me, because it leaves ‘room’ to sample other sweet treats!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20-25 minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray, and place fillo shells on prepared baking sheet.

2

Mix together egg beaters, syrup, and sugar substitute in a small bowl. Pour into a measuring cup with a spout to make filling tart shells easy.

3

Divide pecans evenly among fillo shells. Pour filling into cups over pecans, just until they are full. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until pies are lightly golden brown. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/4 cupEgg beaters
1/4 cupSugar free maple syrup (or all natural syrup, honey, or agave nectar)
1/4 cupBaking stevia OR 1/2 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1
1/2 cupChopped pecans
1Box mini fillo shells (I used Athens brand, which comes with 15 pre-baked shells)

1 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 6-8, or adjust according to taste.

Katie's Tip!

To make these ahead of time, simply prepare the filing and bake them right before serving!

this is so cute! I am dying to try some of your recipes but some of the ingredients (i.e. the dough shells) aren’t available in French supermarkets…as soon as I’m back in Texas though, I’m heading to whole foods with a list of your recipes in tow!

I made these tonight for our Thanksgiving tomorrow – my husband and I had to sample them of course and they were delicious! I overfilled a few of them and the egg mixture baked a little weird, so I just had to make sure those were the ones we tasted tonight!

Could we use regular egg whites instead of Egg Beaters?
