Cinnamon Pecan Muffins-Make Your Own Mix

You can have these warm freshly-baked muffins anytime.
They are so easy and quick to make once you have a few jars of
my muffin mix in your pantry.
I fill saved (Classico) Mason jars with my own
Cinnamon Pecan Muffin Mix.
Just fill the jars with flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
Shake to combine.
Layer the chopped pecans on top.
Use a saucer to cut a circle from a brown paper bag.
Write the directions in the center.
Tie with a bow or string.
A few for you and a few gifts.
 This is a great gift for your friends that don't bake and
 still have baking powder bought during  the Clinton administration.
To mix; beat the egg, milk and oil.
Add the jar ingredients and stir until moistened.
Spoon into sprayed muffin tins half full.
Bake until golden, 15-20 minutes.
Serve warm with butter.
These freeze well.
