Pecan a muffin? YES, PLEASE!

OH SHOOT! I made these delicious little pecan pie muffins, and they were so good that we gobbled them up before I remembered to take a picture. So photo credit goes to someone named Dianne from St. Cloud, MN on All Recipes. In any case, these were so easy to throw together, and if you like pecan pie, this aptly-named muffin is calling your name!

1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 9 muffin cups with paper liners and spray with cooking spray (or 18 mini-muffins).
2.In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar and flour. Melt the butter with the pecans in a small sauce pan until they begin to smell toasty and slightly browned. Remove from heat and cool for five minutes. Whisk the eggs until fluffy, then combine with the cooled melted butter and nuts and the vanilla. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just t combine. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
3.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire racks when done.
