Pecan Tartlets for Retro Recipe Saturdays

I made these Pecan Tartlets at my daughter, Charly's, request.  I used the regular recipe for Pecan Pie from the Karo Syrup label, but used puff pastry for the crust instead of pie crust.  They were delicious and very easy to make.

Pecan Tartlets


I Cup Karo Syrup ( dark corn syrup)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 TB melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup pecans
2 sheets puff pastry rolled out (cut each sheet into 4 squares.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Put 1 puff pastry square into each section in your mini tart pan  sections.  I had to use two mini tart pans, since mine only have 6 squares, but you could use ramekins or even large muffin pans if necessary.  You would need to adjust cooking times if you are using something deeper then the tart pan

Mix syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl.  

Next add the pecans, mix well.

Pour into each puff pastry.

Cook for 30 to 40 minutes or until internal temperature is 200 degrees.  The center top should spring back when touched, when it is done.

Makes 8 tartlets

I wish I had a larger picture of them done, but like usual I forgot to get a picture of the tarlets alone. ( this was our brined turkey from Thanksgiving.)

I hope that you enjoy these Pecan Tartlets.  They are delicious.  I always love hearing from you.

  1. Torture! I want one (okay maybe two) of those tartlets right now!! Your turkey looks fantastic!

    1. Hi Karen,
      The tartlets were delicious. They do sound good right now. I haven't given the recipe for the Turkey, because it was a new recipe for brining, and I didn't love it. It looked beautiful and was very tender but I didn't think it had enough flavor. Once I find a brining recipe that I like, I'll post a turkey recipe, but I need to keep searching.
      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Yummy! And looks really simple to do.

    1. Hi Heather,
      Thanks so much. I was so proud of they way they came out. They were so good, I only wish I had gotten better pictures of them. I always forget to take pictures. Thanks so much for stopping by.
      Have a great weekend.
