Pecan Pie Muffins

These little muffins are so good, and the only thing better is how easy they are to make. I think I had these first at a little tea room that served chicken salad.  The chicken salad came with a quarter pimento cheese sandwich and one of these little muffins.  I like making them when I make my own chicken salad.
Just some basic ingredients for these little muffins.
Start by melting 1 stick of butter which is 1/2 cup.  Let it set for a few minutes so that it can cool off.
And I went ahead and chopped the cup of pecans.  I used the small food processor because you want them cut into pretty small pieces.
Add 1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Two eggs
Mix everything really well.
You can use regular muffin pans but I like making them in the mini muffin pans.  Spray the pans really well.  They will still stick around the tops.
Fill the cups. Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
They spread pretty well and around the edges will still.  Carefully remove them from the pans after they sit for about 5 minutes.  Let cool completely.
I trimmed the extra from around the edges.  And then store in a air tight container.
