Pecan Pie Muffins

These might not be able to compete with the gooey goodness that is your mom's classic pecan pie, but these pecan pie muffins are incredibly indulgent and flavorful. We made a batch the other night and shared them around. They were a HUGE HIT!

  5. Fold wet ingredients in into dry ingredients just until combined.

Recipe Notes

Personally, we found these pecan pie muffins sweet sweet enough that topping with caramel or chocolate seemed unnecessary.
