This is not my recipe, but they are so dang good, I just had to share them! To make it even more indulgent, dish out a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on one while it is still warm, and drizzle with a little caramel sauce...or even chocolate sauce! Worth every calorie!!!

Cook time: 20 Min

Prep time: 15 Min

Serves: 12


Ingredients


1 c light brown sugar, packed
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 c chopped pecans
2/3 c butter, softened
2 lg eggs, beaten
caramel or chocolate sauce, if desired


Directions


1. Preheat oven to 350. Generously grease 12 muffin cups. Grease them well or the muffins will stick. Baker's Joy is recommended.


2. In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and pecans.


3. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and eggs together. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.


4. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full. Bake 15 to 17 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin and pop it out.


Last Step: Don't forget to share!
