Pecan Pie Muffins


Oh my goodness, these muffins are good. Our favourite office baker made these for us last week and everyone had the same response after the first bite, “mmmm”. If you are a pecan pie fan, you will love these muffins. They taste like pecan pie in muffin form. They don’t contain the usual baking powder or baking soda but have a muffin texture with a soft, gooey inside. If you use a muffin liner, allow muffins to cool for easier removal from the liner.

Pecan Pie Muffins
