Reviews for Pecan Pie Mini Muffins
"These are seriously delicious muffins, thank you for sharing this recipe with us."
"Delicious! Tastes like pecan pie!"
"One of the best, classic recipes from Reiman Publications. You can count on it as a people pleaser."
"This is an amazing recipe. My muffins came out perfect. I use unsalted butter so I added 1/2 tsp salt. I also added 1 tsp vanilla extract. No issue with sticking just used cooking spray. Only baked for 18 minutes until tooth pick came out clean. My husband loved them. Will definitely make again."
"I have been making these for years. Everybody falls in love with them! They are so easy to make, no one will know if you don't tell them. Give them a try! A real winner."
"amazing! tastes like a warm, yet better then pecan pie!"
"I cooked them for 22 minutes and they can be used for stones - I think I will start checking at 15 minutes! But- they would be delicious if they weren't so hard!"
"These were so good my husband would not let me take them to a family gathering! I too had a problem getting them out of the pan. I sprayed it with Pam but I think next time Pam with flour otherwise a perfect little pecan pie."
"These are delicious. What a great way to satisfy your craving for pecan pie without all the calories. My husband loves them. They are great with morning coffee."
"This is a very ordinary muffin. It is not like a pecan pie or a decent muffin and it does stick badly to the sides and bottoms no matter how much you spray with cooking spray. A waste of good pecans. There are much better recipes than this one."
