Ingredients You’ll Need

Phyllo Dough Mini Shells:

This filling recipe makes about 60 shells worth. I think they come in 15 to a box, so you may need about 5 boxes.

Corn Syrup:

I used a cup of light corn syrup.

Brown Sugar

You’ll need a cup of brown sugar. I didn’t pack it. I just loosely measured. Then you’ll also need some more to sprinkle on top of each mini pie.

Crushed Pecans:

I used a cup of crushed pecans for the filling then I also sprinkled more on top of each pie.

Eggs:

You’ll need 3 large eggs, beaten.

Vanilla:

I used about a teaspoon of vanilla.

Melted Butter:

You’ll need about a half of a stick of butter melted.
