2 cups pecan halves, cut 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 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
8 half-pint (with lids and rings) canning jars
Cooking spray
2 9-inch pie crusts, unbaked


1. Preheat oven at about 175 degrees C (350 degrees F). Stretch pecans over a baking sheet.

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

3. In a saucepan, bring sugar, light corn syrup, and dark corn syrup to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.

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

6. In a preheated oven, bake it for about 40 minutes or until darkened on top. Before serving, Cool to room temperature.
