What a yummy little treat! These personal sized pecan pies are a fun way to enjoy a classic pie. Crispy and crunchy these pies each have tons of crust, so if that is one of your favorite parts of a pie, you are in luck!
Making the recipe was simple and did not take too long. If you are hosting a summer picnic party these personal sized pies are perfect for low mess individual servings. All in all they are a great dessert.
