Delicious Pecan Pie Cupcakes

These little mini-muffin size guys may not be the most pretty treat, but darn it all, they are melt-in-your-mouth crispy, buttery, pecan-ishly delicious!  Another thing I love about this is that there are only five ingredients.  If you love pecan pie (and Mom, yes you would love these!), these are for you!

I got the recipe for these on www.recipezaar.com.  Here is the recipe as I made it.

Pecan Pie Cupcakes

2/3 cup (10 T. plus 2/3 T. more) butter, melted

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 cup all purpose flour (I used unbleached)

1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped finely

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray the inside of mini muffin tins.  (This recipe made 27 cupcakes for me.)Combine the melted butter and the brown sugar until well incorporated.  Add eggs and mix until combined.  Add flour and again mix well.  Stir in pecans.  Drop spoonfuls into muffin tins about 3/4 full.  Bake for 14 minutes.  (I baked mine for 14 minutes, the recipe actually says 18 minutes.)

Soooooo cute! Really simple recipe, isn't it? I wonder how many of them I could pop into my mouth in one sitting...

It looks like it has a good buttery-tasting outside... that sounds good to me.

These look terrific. I just tried a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes that was wonderful. Will be blogging about that sometime soon.
