"Traditional Pecan Pie in a Jar has a deeply toasted, sweet, luxurious flavor. Just break through the caramelized, crispy pecan topping to expose the amber-colored rich filling and flaky crust inside. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread pecans on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake pecans in the preheated oven until lightly toasted, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Bring sugar, light corn syrup, and dark corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Add syrup mixture slowly, whisking constantly to prevent eggs from curdling. Whisk in butter, vanilla extract, and salt until batter is smooth.
  5. Spray 8 small jars with cooking spray. Press pieces of pie crust dough into bottom and sides of jars. Add a layer of toasted pecans to each jar. Spoon in batter, leaving 1/4 inch rim at top.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until darkened on the top, about 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Check jars while baking at 25 minutes; cover with aluminum foil if tops are darkening too quickly.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
