Granny’s Pecan Pie Tarts

Granny’s pecan pie tarts are the easiest pecan pies you’ll ever make, and each tart is the perfect serving for one person. I make these for every holiday gathering or party, and there is never a single tart left:-)

Granny's Pecan Pie Tarts

I found the recipe for Granny’s Pecan Pie Tarts years ago on the back of a box of Dutch Ann Tart Shells.  I LOVE Dutch Ann tart shells, and make trips to my local Wal-Mart just to stock up on these before holiday baking. In fact, I keep several boxes of these in my freezer at all times.

These tart shells are perfectly sized for one serving, and they always bake perfectly~no overbrowned edges or soggy bottom. I use these shells to make buttermilk pie tarts, chocolate chess tarts, pecan pie tarts, and more.

These tarts work well at parties, as no cutting is required; each guest can grab their tart and go! A normal pie recipe calls for two boxes of tart shells. Since one box has 8 tarts, a normal pie recipe will make 16 tarts.

Here is a photo of a batch of tarts that I just pulled from the oven. They will all be eaten within a day or two, so these won’t go in the freezer (although they do freeze beautifully).

If you find these shells in your local Wal-Mart, do buy a few boxes and give these tarts a try; you’ll love them!!! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
