I had been looking for a simple recipe to make. Something with minimal time invested, few ingredients and no mixer required. I stumbled across these somehow and baked them up that day. With only 5 ingredients how could I resist right? Sadly they were gone that night…might have to double the next time!
Pecan Pie Muffins (Tastykitchen.com)
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- ⅔ cups melted and cooled butter
- 2 whole eggs, beaten
Preheat oven 350 F.
Grease your muffin pan (whatever size) really, really well, or use the silicone cups. I grease my muffin cups with Crisco or lard. and it still wasn’t enough. I had some stickage trouble. Next time I will grease them with lard but also spray them with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and pecans. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and eggs together until smooth. Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
Cups should be about 2/3 full. I was able to fill 8 muffin cups.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire racks when done.
Option: when you take them out of the oven, place a slice of butter on top and eat warm. You may also use walnuts instead of pecans.
