Oh my gosh! Run to your pantry, I'm sure you have everything that you need to make these. There are only 5 ingredients and trust me...you do need to make these!! They are SO good! It's rare that I get so excited about a sweet like this. I'm definitely a more savory type of person. But really, these are that good. I stumbled upon them while I was looking for a recipe to make for my husband's pot luck Thanksgiving at work. You know, one of those things where everyone in the office brings something & you feast all day long. When I worked, we used to refer to this day as, "Fat Day" and we didn't just do it for major holidays! (I know fun, right!?!) The only issue with all day feasts at the office is finding something that can sit out most of the day. Something that doesn't need to stay warm or cold. These little treats are PERFECT! And just in time for Thanksgiving, when everyone else in the world (or maybe just in the south) is making Pecan Pie. These are great with coffee in the morning, as a sweet snack, or as a perfectly portioned dessert on Fat Day!
1 cup Light Brown Sugar
1 cup Pecans, chopped
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan oven low heat.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, nuts & melted butter.
Beat the eggs & add them to the batter.
Spray a mini muffin tin with non- stick cooking spray then spoon the batter evenly into the cups. I topped mine with an extra pecan half.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Let cool completely before removing them from the tin. I ran a butter knife around the sides to help get them out of the pan.
Gobble them up! (That's my Thanksgiving pun.)
See that crispy pecan pie edge?
This recipe makes 24 mini muffins. Here is where I found it.
