These mini caramel apple pecan pies combine the best of both pie worlds with a caramel apple pie filling and a sweet pecan pie topping.---They're nearly impossible to stop eating!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 mini pies

Ingredients

  • Pie crust for one single-crust 9-in pie

Apple filling:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon half-and-cream cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon white whole wheat flour
  • 3 medium apples peeled, cored and diced into 1/2-in cubes

Pecan topping:

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup halved pecans

Instructions

  • Divide pie crust into 12 equal balls. Use your hands to flatten and stretch each ball into a round and place in a greased 12-cup muffin tin. Pat dough in the bottom and up the sides of cups. Place crusts in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, melt butter then whisk in sugar and agave. Bring caramel to a simmer until golden-brown and thickened. Reduce heat to medium and stir in cream, spices, flour, and apples. Cook an additional 5 minutes until apples are slightly tender, then remove from heat and divide apple filling between crusts. Set aside.
  • Make the pecan topping: In a small bowl, whisk sugar, agave, butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in pecans and pour pecan topping evenly over apple filling.
  • Bake pies at 350F 25-30 minutes or until filling is bubbly, crust is golden, and the topping is set. (still slightly jiggly in the middle) Cool pies in pan 10 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
