Pecan Pie Muffins

 These muffins are rich, delicious, a snap to prepare, and perfect for breakfast or snacks or gifts for a new mom!  They are sweet, but not too sweet, and have a crunchy, sugary tops that is pure delight!

Pecan Pie Muffins

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

You can use any size muffin tin for this recipe.  Recipe makes 5 giant muffins, 8 regular muffins, or 12 mini muffins.  Grease your tins with Pam or Baker's Joy.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour, and pecans.  In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter and eggs together until smooth.  Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined.  Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins...about 2/3 full.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  (I baked them in regular muffin tins @19 minutes and they were perfect.  Depends on your oven).

 These muffins are definitely best served warm, preferably straight from the oven with a pat of butter!
