PECAN PIE MINI MUFFINS

If you like Pecan Pie you will love these easy to make mini muffins! They have a wonderful, buttery sweet taste--perfect with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Don't make them in paper holders though like my photos, I found out the hard way that they really stick to the paper. The best method is to lightly grease and flour the tin before pouring the batter in. You may want to double or even triple the batch so you can share--they are that good!





1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter, melted & cooled to lukewarm
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Dash salt

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, flour and pecans, set aside.

Combine butter and eggs, mix well. Stir into flour mixture until just moistened.

Fill greased and floured miniature muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until muffins test done. Tops will be slightly firm if you lightly touch them in the oven. Remove immediately and cool on wire racks. Makes 24 mini muffins. Once cooled store in an airtight container.
