Expert Tips

You can serve with ice cream for a delicious dessert.

Fall is my favorite season. The weather is wonderful and the changing leaves make everything look beautiful. Fall is also a time of year filled with delicious food. One of my favorite recipes is made with nuts and is a family recipe my mother in law passed down to me. I've decided to prepare it for the holidays.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a muffin mold.
  • 2 Separately, stir the ingredients of the dough until it has a soft texture. Create small balls and place them in the molds. Use a molinillo (a wooden whisk) or a tube to create a hole in the middle.
  • 3 In another baking tray, sprinkle on the pecans and bake the dough for 8 minutes or until the corners begin to brown. Cook the nuts for 10 minutes.
  • 4 Add the white sugar, eggs, brown sugar, syrup, flour and salt to a large bowl. Remove the pecans and add to the mixture. Use a spoon to fill in the dough. Decorate with pecans on top and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • 5 Once ready, remove from the oven and let it sit for a bit before removing each piece from the mold. Use a knife to ease the bites out of the muffin molds.
