    I love these muffins! I wound up selling products for a company based out of Texas because I fell in love with the pecan pie muffin mix they had. I was so excited to find a recipe for these wonderful little gems. I only put about 1/2 cup of pecans in mine and I like them pretty gooey so I bake them at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes. They do tend to stick. I use a nonstick mini muffin pan and spray it very well. Baker's joy works better than anything else. I wouldn't recommend using the paper muffin liners. The muffins stick to them like glue.  -  21 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have found that the "key" to these muffins is mini muffin tins -- the regular size ones just don't work, and Baker's Joy spray. Also, I fill mine with just 1 tbsp. of filling, and bake only 17 minutes. Mine are always a hit, in fact, I am enjoying some right now. I love the jar gift idea -- I am going to try that one next Christmas.  -  30 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I LOVE it! They never last at my house more than an hour! I use Baker's Joy and never have a problem with sticking. Also I use melted butter and add it straight to the dry mixture, then the beaten eggs.  -  14 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
