  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions: (Makes 12 servings)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease or line with paper 12 (2-1/2 inch) muffin cups. In small bowl, combine pecans and brown sugar; set aside.
  • In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. With two knives, or pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins.
  • In small mixing bowl, combine pineapple, orange juice and peel, and egg. Stir until blended, then add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.
  • Spoon evenly into prepared muffin pans. Sprinkle with reserved pecan mixture.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. (A wooden toothpick inserted in center will come out clean.) Cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Freezes well.
