Pecan Pie Muffins

I saw these muffins on Pinterest from Southern Living.  They are quite tasty but a challenge to get out of the little muffin pans so be sure and season your pans well before baking.


1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 
1 cup chopped pecans 
1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup butter, melted 
2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
Vegetable cooking spray 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  Make a well in center of mixture. Add melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.  Stir just until moistened. Coat 2 (12-cup) miniature muffin pans well with cooking spray.  Spoon batter, filling almost to top. Place muffin pans on an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack 2 minutes. Run a knife around edge of each cup to loosen muffins, and remove from pans.
