Have you ever seen a more gorgeous and drool worthy muffin?  These muffins are rich, sweet, dense and oozing pecan pie flavor.  You are truly never going to go back to a plain ole blueberry muffins again. I know I sound like a broken record and you might not really believe me.  So my answer to that is to jump up and make a batch right now!  You Will NOT be disappointed.

This recipe makes a small batch just 8 muffins.  You can double or triple the recipe as needed if you need.  I like that this makes only a few.  I am just too tempted to eat them all!!!

The crowning glory to these muffins is the thick rich frosting. Made with the Dark Corn Syrup just like Pecan Pie! I love that the frosting is in between a frosting and a glaze. The Corn Syrup keeps it stable and just a bit viscous. It also firms right up so if you need to transport them.

You can whip these up for breakfast in 30 minutes. Sending the family out with a delicious start to their day. You could also serve these as a snack and they are good enough for desert!

So how easy are these you ask?  Five ingredients and 20-25 min in the oven and presto! Pecan Pie Muffins! These are sure to become your families new favorite muffin.  As for me these are truly the best tasting muffin I have ever made!  Seriously!!!
