World's Best Muffies

This recipe is from Creating a Stir, a truly wonderful cookbook benefiting the children of Kentucky. People jump for joy when theses little treasures come out of the oven.

2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 t vanilla (the recipe says extract, but that’s a travesty. Use the good stuff.)
½ cup all-purpose flour (use unbleached)
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine eggs, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl, stirring well. Add flour and nuts, stirring well.

Spoon batter into miniature muffin pan cups lightly coated with vegetable cooking spray.

Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes.

Makes 3 dozen muffins

Adding fresh or dried fruit makes these little guys extra yummy. We like blueberries, dates, craisins, or dried cherries. This morning it’s going to be dried cherries.

What do they taste like? They taste like MORE!
