Game Day Provisions: Mini Sorghum Pecan Pies

The Technique

Mini Sorghum Pecan Pies

Sorghum is an extremely versatile, drought-tolerant crop filled with essential nutrients that can be used in numerous capacities from livestock silage to a gluten-free food alternative. It’s also the South’s answer to good quality syrup. Bold yet well balanced, Tennessee grown sweet sorghum cane is harvested in the fall & pressed for juice directly in the fields. The juice is then boiled & evaporated creating the coveted syrup. Use as a pure substitution in place of molasses, corn & maple syrup for a distinctive upgrade in your favorite recipes. Get ready to enjoy first-string refreshments all the while winning a bevy of compliments with a well-curated roster of game day goodies.

The Basic Fundamentals

Allow the cream cheese & the butter to stand on the countertop at least 20 minutes to soften before blending the crust ingredients.

1/2 {8-oz} package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sorghum
1 Tbsp Tennessee whiskey
1 tsp vanilla
A pinch of kosher salt
1 egg

Beat the cream cheese & the butter with a stand mixer until smooth. Scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Blend in the flour & the cornmeal on Low speed until a dough forms. Divide the mixture into 24 pieces & roll into balls. Press the dough balls into each space of a lightly greased 24-cup mini muffin tin. Press the mixture evenly on the bottom & up the sides. Chill 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Portion the pecans between the dough in the muffin cups. Whisk together the brown sugar, the sorghum, the whiskey, the vanilla & the salt. Gently fold in the egg. Divide the mixture between the muffin cups. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until the crust is golden & the filling is set. Let stand 5 minutes. Gently loosen the pies with a pairing knife. Cool completely in the pans.

The Extra Point

Break the plain & score big time touchdown points with tailgating fans. Top the petite pies with a mini scoop of premium vanilla ice cream.

Place the pies in a single layer in the bottom of a container with a tight fitting lid, then top with a sheet of parchment paper. Repeat the process until full. The key is to make certain there is a snug fit within the container. Add one more piece of parchment paper before popping on the lid.
