MINI PECAN PIES - Cooking and Recipes

It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

MINI PECAN PIES

MINI PECAN PIES
These Mini Pecan Pies are easy to make and can also be made ahead of time. These are the perfect mini treat for Thanksgiving too! 

These Mini Pecan Pies are the final pie recipe I wanted to share with you before Thanksgiving. It started with this delicious pumpkin pie recipe and now we’re moving on to these delicious Mini Pecan Pies because you really can’t go wrong with a mini dessert. Right? Not only are these mini pies extremely easy to make, but they’re also a great dessert that people can just grab and enjoy.
And these mini pies also freeze really well! I’ve included notes in the recipe for how to freeze them, so you can make these ahead of time if you need to.
You’ll start with a pie crust, you can either use a store-bought pie crust or make your own. If you’ve never made your own pie crust before, I have everything you need to know in this post for how to make your own! I promise making your own pie crust is much easier than you may think. You’ll roll the dough and then cut out 12 circles. I have a 3-inch cookie cutter that I used to cut the circles out. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, a glass or anything similar will work just fine.
Just a note, make sure that your dough comes up the sides of each muffin cavity just a little bit. You may need to stretch each piece of dough some before you put it into the muffin cavities. The filling should stay completely within each piece of pie dough.
You’ll mix up the pecan pie filling and fill each piece of dough with 1 tablespoon of the filling. I strongly urge you to make sure not to overfill each piece of dough. If your pecan pie filling ends up coming over the edges of the dough, it will make a big mess when you bake these little pies. It should look just like the picture above in the muffin pan.

This recipe will make 12 mini pecan pies, but you can easily double the recipe for a larger crowd. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1 pie crust store-bought or homemade
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie dough out into a 12-inch circle. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter (or glass), cut out 12 circles from the dough. Place each piece of dough in each muffin cavity of a 12-count muffin pan, making sure each piece comes up the sides just a little bit (you may need to stretch the dough just a bit). Transfer the muffin pan to the refrigerator while you making the filling.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract until fully combined; then mix in the chopped pecans. Remove the muffin pan from the refrigerator. Evenly distribute the filling (about 1 full tablespoon) between all 12 muffin cavities, making sure the pecan pie filling does not come up over the edges of the dough.
  4. Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes or until the filling is set. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the mini pecan pies from the muffin pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Recipe Notes
Mini pecan pies may be frozen for 2-3 months in a freezer bag or container. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature on the counter before serving.
