Pecan Pie Muffins

This recipe came in an email to me from someone that is participating in an email recipe swap. Make note of where it says that Pam cooking spray will not work with this.

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted

Combine pecans, brown sugar & flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of mixture. Beat eggs until foamy. Stir eggs and butter. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until moistened. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes for 12 muffins.

You can either line your muffin pan with cupcake liners, or use Joy baking spray (Pam will not work). When muffins are done, remove from pan and cool.

This is a wonderful recipe for the holidays, it is so easy and so yummy!!
