How to Make It
Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add egg, beating well. Add pumpkin and molasses, beating well.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to pumpkin mixture, beating at medium-low just until blended. Stir in pecans. Spoon into greased muffin pans, filling three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Remove from pans immediately.
