In honor of the release of our newest cookbook, 12 Days of Christmas with Six Sisters’ Stuff, we hosted a recipe contest to find YOUR favorite holiday recipes! After a lot of baking, cooking and sampling we have chosen 12 of our reader’s favorite recipes! Thanks to everyone who participated!
Today we are featuring these Pecan Pie Muffins from Tara Ericksen. She said this about her recipe:
This recipe is from my mom, who passed away from breast cancer over 12 years ago. I make it every Thanksgiving, and always for friends who come to pheasant hunt at our farm in October. It satisfies their taste for pecan pie, but it is light enough to enjoy more than one. Nothing feels like fall to me than these little muffins that are sweet enough to be called dessert!
When I first read over the ingredients, I thought to myself that something was missing! Only five ingredients?! How do you make muffins out of this? But, I decided to go for it and oh my goodness- these little muffins are bites of heaven! I love pecan pie, so eating it in muffin form was amazing. They literally came together in a matter of minutes and made my house smell amazing!
Thank you for the wonderful recipe, Tara!
