The surprise is a big bite of pecan pie! I usually use frozen pecan pie singles (Edwards), but you can also take homemade prepared pecan pie and freeze a couple of slices for the muffins.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. Cut each frozen pie single into 4 chunks. Place one frozen pie chunk in each muffin tin.
  3. In a small bowl, beat together egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  4. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add egg mixture; stir just until blended.
  5. Spoon batter into muffin tins, covering pecan pie chunks. Stir together topping ingredients (sugar and cinnamon) and sprinkle evenly over muffin tops.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes; remove from muffin tins.
