These Personal Vanilla Rum Pecan pies with a Crème De Menthe Whipped topping were inspired by the Kentucky Derby and the mandatory Mint Julep while watching the race. Once a few friends had them though, they quickly became a favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas for our friends and family. I always have to make a double batch to send some home with everyone.
