- 2 cups chopped pecans
- 2/3 cups butter, softened
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 12 whole pecans

- Grease muffin tins well. If you don't these muffins will stick.
- In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, and chopped pecans.
- In another bowl, beat the butter and eggs together.
- Stir in dry ingredients just until combined. Don't over mix.
- Spoon batter into muffin tins until about 2/3 full.
- Top with a whole pecan piece.
