Pecan Pie Muffins

I saw this recipe at the Tasty Kitchen via a gal named BlackhawkWife.  The name caught my attention.  I need no excuse to consume pecan pie in the morning, but when they come in a muffin form, people talk less.  This is perfect for fall.  The recipe doesn't get a lot simpler.  I think these are best after a night of rest.  Aren't we all better after a nice rest?  It took me awhile to wrap my mind around the idea that they aren't super sweet.  I usually like to feel my teeth rotting when I bite into something, but then I realized these really are little pecan pies.  Not too sweet, a little bit squishy in the center with a nice little crust around the edge.  I think I'll go make nine more....and this is the recipe I'll use to make 'em. 
Pecan Pie Muffins (Makes 9)
Ingredeints:
2/3 c. softened butter, 2 eggs, 1 c. brown sugar, 1 c. crushed pecans, 1/2 c. flour, (set aside) 3 T. of butter

Instructions:
1.  Blend butter and eggs. 
2.  Add in the rest of ingredients (except the 3 T. of butter), just until combined. 
3.  Pour into 9, greased muffins. 
4.  Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Pecan pie and muffins in one? I'm there! I made pecan pie cookies last year and they were a huge hit. I bet these are just as good!
