Expert Tips

  • Success : Use a heavy skillet, low heat and a constant eye to cook the sugar and nuts to ensure no burning. How-To : If you have only one 12-cup muffin pan, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Then bake the rest of the batter in the cooled muffin pan, adding 1 or 2 minutes to the bake time.
