This is a great treat that is a small twist on pecan or walnut pie. Included in the recipe is butter, brown sugars, spices, coconut and walnuts. These are in great demand every year from my family and friends.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/3 cup margarine
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2/3 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 (9 inch) pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
Roll pie dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out circles of dough to fit cups of standard muffin tin. Gently place into muffin cups.
In a saucepan, melt butter and margarine over low heat just until melted. Stir in brown sugar, coconut, spices, nuts, salt, eggs, lemon juice, and corn syrup. Mix well. Fill prepared muffin cups halfway with this mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
