Pecan Pie Mini-Cupcakes

http://www.bakeorbreak.com/ has become one of my new favorite blogs to lurk on. I'm not exactly sure HOW I got there, but once I found it, I think I spent about 2 hours ogling the food porn. There are SO many things on there I want to try to make...but this little gem really stood out to me! Pecan Pie Mini-Cupcakes...seriously?! Is it true? Can you really have the ooey-gooey goodness of a Pecan Pie in the palm of your hand? Why yes, yes you can! SUCH A simple recipe too! Only 5 ingredients! I didn't tweak it at all. (from recipezaar.com) 1 cup chopped pecan 1/2 cup AP flour 1 cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs 2/3 cup butter, melted (I used the big ol tub of spreadable margarine so it was that consistency instead of clear melted-worked fine) Mix all ingredients. Spray mini-tin with non-stick spray. Fill to 3/4s. Bake for 18min at 350 degrees. I'd guess you COULD use mini-liners if you'd like...but spraying the tin worked fine for me. Beware...these little suckers are addictive!!
