Southern Pecan Pie Mini Muffins

It's hard to believe there are only 5 ingredients in these wonderful little pieces of heaven.
They taste just like pecan pie! They are so easy to make and are a big hit anywhere you take them.
1 cup of packed brown sugar,
1/2 cup all-purpose flour ( I use whole wheat)
1 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 cup of butter (one stick melted)
2 eggs (beaten)

In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour, & pecans

Using a Pyrex measuring cup, melt butter in microwave.
Then beat the butter and eggs together until smooth.

    Then add your egg/butter mixture to your dry ingredients. 

Mix ingredients with a fork until combined
Spray your mini muffin pan with a non-stick spray.
Pour your mixture back into the measuring cup to help with pouring your batter into the mini muffin cups.

 Pour your batter into sprayed muffin cups.
Cups should be about 2/3 full.
(Hopefully you will be able to fill all 24....I only made it to 22 :)

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
Cool on wire racks when done.

Serve with a cold glass of milk.Yummy!

My kids love them! They will be gone before you know it!
