First off, do not use paper cupcake liners!! The filling will essentially 'glue' the liner to the crust/filling and will be virtually impossible to remove. The filling did not taste ‘exactly’ like pecan pie either; I thought it tasted like a caramel pecan pie. Not a bad flavor, though. I was unable to eat more than a half of a pie because these pies had a thick and sticky caramel-ish texture that was too difficult to chew due to minor jaw problems. This recipe only yielded about 35-40 mini pies, because the filling was not sufficient (but it had cooled some by the time I filled my last batch). Since I do not care for vanilla wafers plain, I put them in my food processor with some sugar and a little melted butter, and processed until finely ground. This made an excellent crust. I probably will not try this recipe again mainly due to the fact that I can not chew them!
