Colleens Butter Tarts Recipe

  • 1 (15 ounce) package pie crust pastry
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, or as needed
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Roll prepared pie crust pastry out on a lightly floured surface; cut into circles using a biscuit cutter. Press pastry circles into 12 individual size tart tins.
  3. Beat corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, and salt together in a mixing bowl until frothy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons pecans into bottom of each tart shell; pour in egg mixture to fill shells 3/4 full.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is bubbly and pastry is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Allow tarts to cool for 10 minutes; remove from tart tins.
