Pecan Pie Muffins are a mix between a pie and a muffin. They have a muffin texture with a soft gooey inside like a mini Southern pecan pie. This recipe is one of the highest used recipes during the fall especially for Thanksgiving!

For a second, I had the idea of giving you guys a beautiful step by step tutorial on how to make the perfect Thanksgiving turkey. But quite frankly making a turkey is something I do once a year and I don’t have enough motivation to do it more than that.
The actual process of making a turkey isn’t that hard but if you screw up the bird, Thanksgiving is ruined. In my nightmare, I imagine everyone sitting around a huge table staring sadly at their empty plates and then at me.
Sooooo, instead I’m sharing some Pecan Pie Muffins that a reader Tammy sent me a long time ago. I want to call these Puffins because they’re pie/muffins. I felt like they were more pie than muffin but my husband felt the opposite.
These Pecan Pie Muffins are super easy to throw together with only five ingredients. Tammy swears if you just under-bake them, they really taste like a pecan pie and she’s right. They have crispy chewy edges and a soft gooey center. If you’re scared of butter you should just walk away now. Just sayin’. The only way you can screw these up is to not properly grease your pan. Baker’s Joy spray works really well here.
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bow and mix well.
Spray a miniature muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. (The spray with flour in it works best!) Fill each indention 3/4 of the way full.
Bake in preheated oven for approx 18 minutes.
Makes 24-28 mini muffins.
