Recipe - Mini Pecan Desserts


This recipe is from a friend of my Mom's.....
Mom, let me know where you acquired this recipe.... I forgot to write down her name!
Paula Deen does have a very similar recipe for full sized muffins called "Pecan Pie Muffins".

These mini pecan muffin-like desserts can be eaten anytime for snacks or breakfast. I find them sweet enough to use as a dessert with coffee. Maybe a little whipped cream or cream cheese frosting on top too? These are so delicious, you truly cannot eat just one (as my Mom saw me eat several at a time while in Maine recently...).
I made these for church hospitality and everyone said they were very good (sweet and yummy!).

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
2/3 C. butter
2 eggs
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. flour
1 C. finely chopped pecan (may substitute walnuts)

Mix together the flour, pecans and brown sugar.
Mix together the butter and eggs. Blend in the dry mixture. Fill greased mini-muffin pan (makes 24 mini's).

mmmmmm...they do look good! I'm going to give them a try. I just baked 2 loaves of Amish Friendship bread - very good. I put walnuts in one and cranberries and walnuts in the other.
