Y’all are gonna love this one, I promise! We had an absolutely wonderful breakfast a few weeks ago at work. One of the guy’s mother is a great cook & wanted to bring us all breakfast! How could we refuse that sweet deal? One of the things she brought was these little muffins. I didn’t even taste them until the end of breakfast, when one of the girls was raving about them. OMGosh! They are delicious…you will love me for sharing them with you. Go…get the stuff you need & buy yourself a mini-muffin pan like I had to do. These are about the best thing you could put in your mouth! I’m not kidding…and we love our pecans down here in the South. Pecans make anything taste better.
Pecan Pie Mini-Muffins
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter – melted
2 eggs beaten
Mix all together & spoon in mini-muffin pan. Bake at 350* for approx. 12-15 mins. They should slide right out of a non-stick pan.
EDITED TO ADD: Thanks, Sheryl from MI for pointing out the butter error!! Fractions have never been my strong suit, LOL. I should have just left it at 2/3 cup butter & not tried to figure out the sticks. Mine turned out fine anyway, but yeah…less butter is better, haa-haaa! I made more of these today! So, how do you figure 2/3 cup butter anyway?? Now, I need to find out. I usually look on the butter label & figure it from there. They have it in TBL & I know 1 stick is 1/2 cup…I need a math whiz to figure this one out. I can ask my hubby & he’ll know.
It will look pretty soupy when you mix it up, but I promise they will bake up just right. How easy is that recipe?
This recipe makes 2 dozen mini-muffins. They are so scrumptious, you might want to double the recipe, cause you will grab one everytime you walk by them….I’m NOT kidding! These would be perfect for a brunch.
I guarantee you these will not make it 24 hours in our house. And I was right, they were all gone in one day. You tell yourself…they’re tiny little things! Ha-haaaa! (there’s my hydrangea blooms that I dried). So, you keep grabbing them up & popping them in your mouth, til they are all gone.
You might as well just get in the car & go to the store now and you will thank me later…I’m happy to share it with all my friends. Go! What are you waiting for?
Debra over at The Bunnies’ Bungalow has tagged me for a middle name meme. Now I have to think…and it’s really late for that right now. Thanks, Debra!! Yours was short & very clever. I’m not feeling very clever right now, but I’ll come up with something.
So this meme works this way (condensed version). *You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name.*If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.* At the end of your post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
M – Married, with no children of my own.
A – Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies.
R – Reading is one of my favorite things to do.
I – Ice Cream is on my short list of yummy things to eat…remember Bruster’s?
E – Eating, are we talking about food again…oh yeah! See above recipe…’nuff said.
I think I’m gonna be a rebel again & not tag anyone. If you want to play, feel free! I see several others have been tagged already.
Hope y’all have a great weekend!
