Mini Pecan Pie Treats

These yummy treats are perfect for almost any occasion. . I love pecan pie and is always in a never ending battle between my other favorite…pumpkin. But I can never allow myself to go through an autumn with out making at least one pecan pie…

 

These are such great little treats to have around for coffee with a friend, small dessert after dinner and just to have a bite of pecan goodness without a whole piece of pie or the crust…a little portion control here I guess (not that I like that much LOL). This recipe is perfect because it’s so simple and only make enough for 1 batch (24 mini muffins).

 

I hope you and your loved ones enjoy this yummy mini piece of fall ☺

Ingredients:

 

1 cup Packed Brown Sugar

½ cup Flour

2 cups Chopped Pecans

2/3 cup Butter, softened (I used light butter)

2 Eggs, beaten

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (I actually used coconut oil spray I found at Trader Joe’s) make sure you spray the pan very well.

In a bowl mix together the brown sugar, flour and pecans. In a separate bowl beat the butter and eggs together.

Stir in the dry ingredients just until combined.

Spoon the batter into each muffin cup about 2/3 full.

Bake for about 13 minutes. Let cool for just a bit, then use a butter knife to run around the edges of each muffin to help pop them out.
