This recipe couldn't have been easier or more tasty. Definitely keeping this one in the archives. Will likely make them again for another dinner on Sunday. Threw them together as I was waiting for the turkey to come out of the oven on Thanksgiving. I was using a nonstick mini muffin pan thankfully since I'd forgotten to spray the pan. Gave a quick spray to the remaining cups & had no trouble getting any of them out of the pan. Used real butter which had such great flavor with the nuts & sugar. I only used a 1/2 tsp of finely chopped pecans in the bottom of each cup. Good thing, too, as they puffed up & would've exceeded the cup with more in the bottom.

First time I made them, they stuck to the pan pretty bad. I used mini muffin liners after that and I've gotten nothing but rave reviews! Spray the liners before filling and you'll be fine.

I just made these muffins. They are tasty, however they stuck in the tins. I sprayed well I thought but the bottom pecans stayed in the pan. I tried removing some of them while still a bit warm and let the rest cool but they both stuck. I am going to try the recipe again but will incorporate the 1/2 finely chopped pecans into the batter and not put them on the bottom of the pan. Made these a 2nd time and they stuck as well. Everyone loves the taste but they are a mess coming out of the pan. I sprayed REALLY well this time and didn't put the pecans on the bottom. Not sure what is going on. It is like the bottom of the muffins is not getting done. I'm going to try without putting them on the cookie sheet. Wouldn't waste my time but they are tasty.

These muffins were excellent. I made them for a tailgate brunch and they dissapeared so fast that I didn't get one. Made them again the next day and took them to Church fellowship and again they did a dissappearung act. This recipe is definitely a keeper

The muffins are delicious but the recipe definitely does not make 24 but barely makes 9. I had to triple the recipe for 24 muffins. I put them in baking cup and they were hard to remove from the cup.

Loved the recipe. Can't stop from eating them. Delicious little bits. Make sure to spray mini-pan then use a like a paring knife to run around the edge before they set after bringing them out to cool. Also take them out near the end of time and push any spreading batter back into the pan holes to help with taking the finished product out. For that other comment about size a mini pan is two sizes down from the now "average" size muffin sold at coffee shops. Think of bit size muffins to make sure you have right pan size.

So simple, easy and yummy!! Perfect for a busy mom!! I toss a few of these in the diaper bag before I do my running around and I have a nice little energy packed bite when I need it. Definitely a hit.

So delicious! Would make these everyday! Tried to make them in paper baking cups to take to a party and they were completely stuck in there. We had to eat around the paper. Definitely just bake in greased muffins tins. Excellent!!

This is a big hit with family and friends! The only alteration I have made is to melt a bit of butter in the muffin tin before I add the crushed pecans. They come out of the pan easier and gives the muffins a more buttery flavor.

I could only get a dozen muffins out of the batter...but THEY WERE AMAZING. I couldn't stop eating them, and my husbands family loved them. I definitely have this recipe saved for future use. As stated before me, it is a great idea to spray the muffin cups a little because that can stick quite a bit. However, they taste amazing! Easy and delicious - my kind of recipe.

I liked that there is not much flour in the recipe, I used whole wheat pastry flour. Was able to make 9 muffins in a 1/4 cup size muffin pan. Also, only used 1/4 cup of butter and added 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree. 3/4 cup of sugar is sweet enough for "muffins". Mixed chopped nut into the batter. Good and easy to make. The nuts and brown sugar makes it yummy.

These are absolutely delicious and got rave reviews! They are sweet & buttery and worth every calorie. After reading reviews about sticking, I sprayed a non stick mini muffin pan and melted a little butter to put in each cup with some finely diced pecans. They popped right out of the pan. I will definitely make these again. My kids loved them.
