One of the side benefits of having a daughter who loves to cook, loves photography, and writes a monthly recipe column for a local magazine is that our family gets to try all sorts of incredible dishes Mom would probably not find time to make herself.
Like this wonderful recipe for Pecan Pie Muffins. Rebekah found the handwritten card (labeled “From the Kitchen of: Anne Wattner Eads”) in an overstuffed recipe file at her grandmother’s house last summer.
Since she was on a little bit of a baking jag at the time, Nana suggested she take a few of the recipes home and give them a try, which she did, much to the delight of the rest of our family.
Pecan pie has been a Thanksgiving tradition at our house for as long as I can remember, but several of my children don’t care for the consistency. These muffins deliver all the great taste without any of the goo.
Do you love a good sweet, chewy, rich pecan pie? There’s a few in my family who sure do… 😉 Well, you don’t always have the time (or calorie allotment) to make and enjoy one from scratch, but I have a delicious alternative for you, these pecan pie muffins… They’re a perfect way to satisfy one of those emergency cravings, and you can enjoy them for a snack, dessert, or as a side to your morning coffee. So there! No more waiting for a special occasion or excuse, to have a scrumptious satisfying pecan pie-ish treat.
