Pecan Pie Muffins

I don't recall where I learned about this recipe but have seen it several times on various blogs and it is so simple and so good that I wanted to pass it along to you.

This recipe stirs up  quickly with only five simple ingredients that I bet you have in your pantry right now.  While they are baking your house smells delectable.

If you love pecan pie or know someone who does, give this recipe a try and wait for the compliments to come your way!

I've made these for my neighbor who came over unsolicited with his snow blower this winter to clear my driveway and have a batch in the oven right now to send to my brother for his birthday!

Pecan Pie Muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs

Directions:
Oven Ready
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
  1. Liberally coat mini-muffin tins with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar, flour and chopped pecans.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter and eggs until smooth.
  4. Stir egg and butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling to 3/4 full.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees (175 C) for 20-24 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire racks when done.

Wait until the muffins are completely cool before trying to remove them from the muffin pan.  Run a knife around the edges of the muffin pan to make removal easier.  The muffins have a tendency to stick.  That's okay though....the baker needs to sample them for recipe quality control! 

Yield:  24 mini muffins.

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
