Cook Time: 15 Mins
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
30-36 whole pecan halves for top of muffin, optional
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl using a wooden spoon, mix the sugar, flour, eggs, butter and chopped pecans. Grease a mini-muffin pan. Fill 2/3 full and top with a whole pecan half. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes before removing from pan.
These are perfect as a holiday gift, make a great snack, or a quick breakfast. You can also toast the pecans to give the muffins a deep nutty flavor.
