Party Pecan Pies Recipe

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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:48 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

"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."

"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."
