PECAN PIE IN A JAR IS THE CUTEST HOLIDAYS TREAT

-ADVERTISEMENT-

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups pecan halves, broken into coarse pieces

1 cup white sugar

3/4 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup dark corn syrup

4 eggs

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

8 half-pint canning jars with lids and rings

cooking spray

2 unbaked 9-inch pie crusts

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread pecans on a baking sheet.

Bake pecans in the preheated oven until lightly toasted, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

Bring sugar, light corn syrup, and dark corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly about 10 minutes.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Add syrup mixture slowly, constantly whisking to prevent eggs from curdling.

Whisk in butter, vanilla extract, and salt until batter is smooth.

Spray eight small jars with cooking spray—press pieces of pie crust dough into the bottom and sides of jars. Add a layer of toasted pecans to each jar. Spoon in batter, leaving 1/4 inch rim at top.

Bake in preheated oven until darkened on the top, about 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.
