Here are some helpful hints to make these Easy Mini Butter Pecan Cookies epic!
- Butter or spray your mini muffin pan very well. I have had them stick in my older pan.
- Cookies should only be left to cool in the pan for a couple of minutes.
- Drape a large clean kitchen towel over the pan and flip to release the cookies. A lot less damage is done to the cookies and your pan than trying to remove them with a knife
