Some Easter Goodies

I love an excuse to bake. Easter is my current reason to spend some time in the kitchen. I love to send boxes of goodies to my kids and to share with my friends and those that I visit teach.
I thought I'd 'monogram' some of my cookies in recognition of my girls and the men that they love!

And you can't have Easter without a carrot.

These are absolutely the BEST! My friend Tammy Mort shared this delightful recipe with us for Volunteer Recognition Week. Mini Pecan Pie Muffins. You'll find the recipe below --- I tweaked it just a bit and it is AMAZING!

Just the right size to 'pop' in your mouth!

Mini Pecan Pie Muffins
2 large eggs
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. flour (may need to add just a spoonful or two more)
1 c. chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients together in order given till well blended. Spray the bottoms only of a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and fill 3/4 full of batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes before carefully removing from muffin tins to finish cooling.

You are so talented! I always wish I could do things that look pretty in the kitchen but since I can't, I'll just appreciate yours. :)
