Quick quiz - Do you say "Pee-cans" or "Pa-cahns"?
I've always said "Pee-can". Then this rude northern person told me that a "Pee-can" was something kept under the bed at night.
No matter what you call them, I love pecans. I was ecstatic to see a recipe with only five ingredients that I could whip up in the mornings. Even though I say I made these to pack in the kids' breakfast, I knew they wouldn't eat them. Fine by me. Warm from the oven they really do taste like little mini-pecan pies.
Pecan Pie Muffins
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. chopped pecans
2/3 c. butter, melted and cooled

In large bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, and pecans. Set aside. In another bowl, stir together the butter and eggs. Stir both together. Fill greased and floured mini-muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 - 20 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks.
