Pecan Pie Muffins

I have read all the Coffee House Mystery Books and love them! I have also tried many of the included recipes and all have turned out except.... The pecan pie muffins completely stuck to my muffin tin. I used a non-stick pan and made sure the cups were well-greased, but they still stuck. Any suggestions? I would try greased parchment cupcake liners next time but am worried they will stick to that too. I definitely want to make them again because they were absolutely delicious!! Thanks for these books and all the great recipes. My sisters and I look forward to, and count down the days, to each book's release! Mary

Cleo's reply -- Hi, Mary! I'm so glad to know that you're enjoying our Coffeehouse Mystery books and the recipes we include as a bonus. Those Pecan Pie Muffins are really delicious, and they have turned out beautifully for me (see my photos below). I'm sorry about your sticky issue--if you'll excuse the pun! Let me try to help you with some suggestions. (1) I have found that well-used, non-stick pans can lose their ability to create a good, non-stick environment for your baked goods. If you have an older, well-used pan, that could be one issue. Even if you do have a good-quality non-stick pan, my suggestion would be (2) to use a generous amount of non-stick spray--(really generous). Also, (3) make sure you allow the muffins to cool at least five minutes (give it 10 minutes this time) before (4) running your knife around the edges (as the recipe instructs) to losen them and remove them from the pan. Also, (5) be sure to preheat your oven for at least 30 minutes. Many ovens do not preheat well. They'll beep after 10 minutes but they won't actually be runnning at the temperature you need. If the muffins are underbaked, they will stick. As with all cupcake and muffin recipes, be sure the top of the muffins are set well and fully cooked--they should spring back when touched.

I hope my suggestions help, and thank you again for your kind note about loving the books. My husband (and partner in crime writing) and I truly appreciate that!

Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo

Photos of my Pecan Pie Muffins, 

from the recipe section

of Dead Cold Brew... 

I baked these muffins in a (good quality) non-stick muffin pan
with a
3.5 ounce cup capacity. NOTE: That is NOT
a jumbo muffin, it's a standard muffin, however...

If you are using a cupcake pan with a 3 ounce capacity
(rather than 3.5 ounce), your muffins will bake up a bit taller
with straighter sides. (Cup capacity is based on how
much liquid volume the muffin pan's cup will hold.)
No worries. Either way, they will taste delicious!

New Reader

I was just walking through the library and picked up this book A Brew to a Kill, I got in the car and read your acknowledgement page. I see this is a series and I usually like to read books in order but this looks like a good book, I hope I don't miss too much starting at book 11

 

 

Cleo's reply:

Hello, New Reader, and welcome to our Coffeehouse community. YES, by all means, enjoy A BREW TO A KILL. I write these books in collaboration with my husband, and he and I both strive to create stand-alone mysteries for readers like you. When you pick up any one of our books, you will learn about the characters as you read and the necessary information about their backgrounds and relationships to help you enjoy the stories (and prevent you from feeling lost).

 

If you like A BREW TO A KILL, you can either move forward to Coffeehouse Mysteries #12 and #13 (Holiday Buzz and Billionaire Blend), or you can start at the beginning and learn how Clare came to become a coffeehouse manager in Greenwich Village; how she met Mike Quinn, her NYPD detective boyfriend; and how their relationship grew over time. Those things you can learn as you read books #1 through #10...

for the Free Title Checklist of Books in Order.
It includes links to Free Recipe Guides, as well...

In closing, my husband and I hope you enjoy A BREW TO A KILL, and we sincerely hope you'll continue to come back to our fictional Village Blend coffeehouse...where coffee and crime are always brewing. 


Love,

Cleo

Recipes & Penn. Dutch Noodle Casserole

Having been in the restaurant business, you could cook the noodles ahead of time and then cover them with cold water (in a bowl). When time to use, place in strainer, run hot water over them and add to your casserole. This is what is done to pasta servings in some restaurants, not cooked to order. Have you also thought about publishing a cookbook with recipes from all the coffeehouse mystery books?
