Pecan Pie Cupcakes

I know I’ve really sucked at posting lately, and I don’t have a great excuse. If you look to the left, you’ll see I have tons of recipes to share with you, but I just keep forgetting to upload the photos. I haven’t been great at meal planning, either; in fact, it’s only the second week of the year, and I already neglected to plan meals for the week. I really need to get my act together!

Anyway. Today you get…pecan pie cupcakes, because they’re the only recipe for which I actually have a photo uploaded. I need to give them more credit, though, because they really are absolutely delicious. I made a double batch of these for Thanksgiving as an alternative to a traditional pecan pie (that should tell you how back-logged with recipes I am!), and my entire family loved them. True to their name, they taste exactly like pecan pie, but in cute little cupcake form.

Pecan Pie Cupcakes

(makes about 10 standard-sized cupcakes)

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or spray very well with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full.

3. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

definitely very exciting about some of those "to be posted" things on your list! These look great too--I think people love mini-desserts and this is no exception!
