Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Tassies

One of my favorite party desserts are Pecan Tassies. They are simply delicious bite size pecan pies. Just like a Pecan Pie you simply mix the ingredients together in a bowl, spoon into tarts, bake, and serve! It doesn't get any easier than that! Want to add a little something extra? Try a dollop of whipped cream of top! Check out my Bourbon Whipped Cream recipe here!
My two special touches are the addition of Kentucky Bourbon and crispy Phyllo Tarts instead of mini pie shells.
This recipe was my #7 most popular recipe in 2013! View the Top 10 here


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  •  1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 teaspoons Bourbon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (or pecan pieces)
  • 2 packages phyllo tart shells (15 per package)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a mini muffin tin with the phyllo shells.
  3. Mix sugar, butter, eggs, corn syrup, vanilla, Bourbon together in a bowl.
  4. Add chopped pecans.
  5. Using a spoon, fill each phyllo shell to the top.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  7. Serve warm or at room temp.
  8. You can also serve with a small dollop or whipped cream.

These bite size pecan pies are always a hit at my parties!
My secret ingredient! Bourbon! Add 1-2 teaspoons for a delicious flavor.
Mini filo shells are such a fantastic ingredient to keep stocked in your freezer!
They are crispy phyllo dough shells that you can use for bite size desserts and appetizers.
 I like to use chopped pecans because I like larger chunks of pecans
but you can also use small pecans pieces.
It doesn't take much to fill up the phyllo shells. About a tablespoon or so.

Phyllo shells are a great alternative for heavy, rich pie shells.
They also are slightly smaller so they are yummy, crunchy bite size desserts!
So much flavor in one bite!

  1. Nicole! I know you posted this 3 years ago, but this recipe is AMAZING!!! My boyfriend asked for mini pecan "tasties" and I told him I'd see what I could do. I am so impressed and so excited for him to try them! Thank you :)
