Though they're small, Judy Theriot's pleasing "pies" are packed with flavor and sized right for a buffet. What's more, writes Judy from Pierre Part, Louisiana, "They can be stored in the freezer to make party or gift preparations that much easier."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2009

For a dressier presentation, place a whole pecan piece on top of the filling before baking. I agree, it's much less work to use the tart tamper to make the shells, as a previous reviewer stated.

Re:Party Pecan Pies

I fixed this recipe and I thought

it was great. I rolled to pastry into 2" balls, placed one in each mini muffin cup then I used a tart tamper to press the pastry down.

These were a hit at the party I took them to and I plan to make them again for another party.

Reviewed Nov. 17, 2008

This recipe was very fussy and the filling oozed all over, even though I was careful not to over fill the mini muffin cups. I made one batch of the minis and gave up. I then made a regular pie with what was left over and it was tasty.
