  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Spray bottoms and sides of mini muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • For the dough: In a food processor, pulse pecans with the sugar, salt, and flour, until the nuts are ground and the ingredients are combined.
  • Add in butter and pulse until dough resembles coarse meal.
  • Slowly pour in ice water through the feed tube, pulsing, until the dough comes together.
  • Remove from processor bowl onto clean work surface sprinkled with flour.
  • Form dough into a ball and divide evenly into 24 pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball and evenly press into each cup, until the bottom is covered.
  • If the dough is sticky, dip your fingers in flour first.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes until the crusts are very golden.
  • Check periodically to make sure they don't get too brown.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling: In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and yolk with the corn syrup, sugar, pumpkin filling and vanilla.
  • Stir in the chopped pecans.
  • Remove dough from oven and spoon 1 tablespoon of the filling into each cup.

  • Return the pans to the oven and continue baking, for 12-15 minutes more, until the pumpkin filling is set.
  • Allow to cool before removing from the pans.
