Pecan Pie Day

Why Pecan Pie Day is in the middle of July and not around say, Thanksgiving, is beyond me. Pecans just scream Fall. I guess it's some small concept like when they are harvested and such. So although the weather does not scream Fall, enjoy pecan pie in muffin form.

Pecan Pie Muffins

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Beat eggs until foamy. Stir together eggs and butter; add to dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened.

Spoon batter into muffin cups (either lined with baking cups or sprayed with cooking spray), filling 2/3's full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until done. Remove from pan immediately.

Pecan Pie Muffin review:

"Pecan Pie is too sweet but the muffins are great because they have the flavor of Pecan Pie but are not overly sweet."
