Yesterday I went to a 1st birthday party and met up with an old friend for a few hours. I had a great time but I didn’t have an idea of what I would post today nor the time to really think about it. I have lots of recipes pinned that I want to try, probably enough to last me a lifetime.
Pecan Pie Muffins is a recipe I wanted to try for a long time. It’s a quick and easy recipe to whip up if you have pecans in your pantry.These muffins taste great and have lots of pecans throughout. The hubby gave them the thumbs up. They’re great as is or you can top them with whipped cream or ice cream just as you would with Pecan Pie.
Pecan Pie Muffins
Yield: 9 to 10 servings Cook Time: 25 minutes
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
- 2/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 eggs
- 10 additional pecan halves for muffin topping
- whipped cream or ice cream for topping (optional)
Step 1: Line two muffin pans with 10 cupcake liners. In a medium bowl, mix the pecans, flour and brown sugar until well combined. Set aside.
Step 2: In separate medium bowl, beat eggs and melted butter together. Add the egg mixture to the pecan mixture and mix by hand until just combined. Spoon into the muffin wells to about 2/3 full. Place half a pecan on the top of each muffin.
Step 3: Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer muffins to a cooling rack to cool. Serve warm or room temperature. You can top with whipped cream or ice cream.
