These little muffins taste just like a pecan pie. I actually think they are better than pecan pie because I don't like pecan pie. It's is the filling that turns me off to pecan pie. It is a consistency thing. I am sure it is awesome, but I just can't do it. Chicken Legs, on the other hand, LOVE pecan pie and these pecan pie muffins.
These muffins only take a minute to whip up and taste great. I love that they are bite sized. Just pop one in your mouth and you are good to go! These muffins travel well, so they are perfect for tailgating. These would also be great for breakfast (anytime really). Sometimes I like to sprinkle some powdered sugar on top of the muffins for a little extra sweetness. Give them a try!
