Preheat oven to 400°.
Mix together in a saucepan:
2 tablespoons melted butter
½ cup chopped pecans
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup corn syrup (Karo)
Dash of salt
While constantly stirring, cook on the stovetop over medium-low heat just until thickened. You don’t want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding. Remove from heat and set aside.
1 prepared single pie crust
Using a 3″ cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about 1/8-1/4″ up on the edges of each circle so it can hold the filling.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.
Place on a parchment-lined pan and bake for 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
