Pecan Pie Mini Muffins

This is one of my most asked for recipes. Who knew that  three simple ingredients could make something so amazing! It’s a sweet treat that keeps you coming back for more…ok, one more…and then just… one.. more!

Here’s an idea…

MAKE IT A MUFFIN MIX: Follow the recipe instructions for packaging the dry ingredients in a sealable bag or container and stock your pantry shelf with several of to prepare quickly for a variety of occasions.

  • Need to bring an item to a pot luck…these are fast, easy and will be the hit of the buffet line!
  • Is there a teacher you need to thank?  Deliver a plate of these at the start of the school day and she’ll greet you with a smile when school is out!
  • After school treat!  Kids love these.
  • Need a dessert dish? These cross the dessert / muffin barrier.  They go both ways!

MAKE IT A GIFT:  

Jar the dry ingredients and gift it with a hand written recipe card (or print the one above). 
Make it look nice by layering the dry ingredients with brown sugar on the bottom and the pecans as the final layer on top. 

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake/ball

A holiday favorite, this recipe is asked for every fall. It’s simple to make ahead and refrigerate as either a pie in a graham cracker crust or as a dessert cheeseball you can serve with graham crackers or gingersnaps. 

The original recipe was created as a mix that is great for giving as a gift. That version calls for powdered pumpkin, which can be found in a web search or on Amazon.  No need to stress over finding it though! I’ve provided an alternate version using canned pumpkin as well!
