This recipe is awsome. Will use it for the holidays instead of making the pie. I used a standard muffin pan, no liners, just spray/grease pan well. It made 10 muffins. They do not raise, so fill them 2/3 or more. I cooked them 20 minutes. Wait til they are cool to try them. They need to be cool for the pecan pie flavor to come thru.
Awesome little cupcake. No one could eat just one. To prevent them from sticking to the pan, flip them out as soon as they come out of the oven. I got exactly 24 mini muffins from my batch. PS: I also added 1 tablespoon of Karo light corn syrup and 1 teaspoon vanilla to the batter. What is a pecan pie cupcake without a little Karo syrup and vanilla!
I give these five stars being being so delicious and easy to get ready. They freeze well too!!!! The whole family loved them! I will tell you a little tip that helped me....DO NOT let them cool in the mini muffin pan....slide them out immediatly and let them cool on a plate, cookie sheet, whatever...if you let them cool in the muffin pan they will stick and they will not look very nice, then you will forced to eat them all yourself.
