pecan pie mini-muffins...

Hello all you pecan pie lovers.
Today is October 1st!
I love the month of October.
"Not a pecan pie lover", you say?
Well, this one is certain to change your mind.
Give 'em a try.
They're tasty little bites of sweet goodness.
For real.

And believe it or not, this is all you need to make 'em.
~ 1 cup packed light brown sugar
~ 1/2 cup all purpose flour
~ 1 cup chopped pecans
~ 2 whole eggs, beaten
~ 2/3 cup butter, softened

For real.

However, next time I make 'em I'll double
the ingredients and make bigger muffins.

First things first... preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line your muffin pan with paper cups...
or spray well with a non-stick spray.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the brown sugar, flour and pecans.

Take your beaten eggs...

and pour into a small to medium size mixing bowl with the butter.

Then, grab this bad boy and mix together until blended.
And yes, I'm aware my mixer only has one beater...
all I can say is, never hand your mixer to a computer guy.

It will look like this... little chunks of butter.
It's a good thing.

Pour you egg and butter mixture over the dry sugar, flour mixture.

Stir/blend well.
See those chunks of brown sugar and butter?
That's a really good thing.

Fill your muffin cups about 2/3 full.

Then, grab this...

and do this...

sprinkle a little on the top of each muffin.

Pop in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Now, here's the best part...
spread a little butter on top of one straight out of the oven.


Make 'em this weekend...
Remember to double the recipe
because you're family will want some too.

I'll see you soon with Homecoming updates...
can't wait to see my baby freshman in her dress!
