  • 1 ½ tablespoon (45g/1 ½ oz) butter, melted
  • cup (85g/3 ¼ oz) brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (41g/1 ½ oz) maple syrup/ honey or golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • cup (60g/2oz) pecans, chopped and toasted
  • 2 small cookies , crushed into 2 tablespoons of crumbs (graham crackers, digestives, gingersnap cookies)
  • extra pecans for decoration
  • (Makes enough for two pies).
  1. In a small bowl whisk together the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, vanilla and salt. Whisk in egg.
  2. In a microwavable mug add in your crushed cookies to the bottom.
  3. Pour in your pecan pie mix. Microwave roughly for 1- ½ minutes, checking every 30 seconds. The mix will thicken and appear jelly like, but it will set as it cools. Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary.
  4. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave. Let it stand for a couple minutes to cool. Serve with whipped cream and Enjoy otherwise place in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
  5. *notes: Make the pecan pie mix 24 hours in advance.
  6. Once microwaved you can place in the fridge once cooled for up to 2 days. Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug.
