That's right, I said, "Pecan Pie Muffins"! So simple, so delicious, so easy and I bet you have the ingredients in your pantry at this very moment.
Here's the method:
Combine 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup flour in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, beat 2 large eggs until foamy and stir in 1/2 cup melted butter. Add butter and eggs to dry mixture and mix just until combined.
Place foil baking cups in a muffin tin and spray with cooking spray. Fill the cups 2/3 full of batter. If you use a full size muffin tin, you will get 9 muffins, if you use a mini muffin tin (my personal preference) you will get 24. Bake at 350 for 20-20 minutes for full size muffins and 15 minutes for mini muffins. These may not look done in the center, that is good! The edges should look crisp. Don't try to use a toothpick to test them for doneness.
These are a wonderful holiday "go to" for family and friends. They probably freeze well, but I wouldn't know as they are never around our house long enough to find out!
