The following is a great recipe you can prep early and have on hand for your meal - if you can manage to wait to eat them til then ;)
Pecan Pie Muffins:
1 c. packed light brown sugar
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. chopped pecans
2/3 c. butter melted and cooled a bit
2 eggs lightly beaten
In a large bowl: combine brown sugar, flour and pecans then set aside. Combine butter and eggs and stir into sugar mix. Fill greased and floured (very important!) mini-muffin cups 2/3 way full. Bake 350 for 20-25 mins. Immediately flip onto wire rack to cool. Yields 2 dozen.
