Cranberry Muffins with Pecan Streusel

I love to make the most out of cranberry season and these muffins are a great way. Loaded with chopped fresh cranberries and pecans topped with a sugary, buttery pecany (is that a word?) streusel topping!
So easy but so impressive and tasty! 
Cranberry Muffins with Pecan Streusel

    For the Topping
    • 3 tablespoons of flour
    • 4 tablespoons of sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons of butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup of pecans
    For the Muffins
    • 1 1/3 cup of flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cups of pecans
    • 1 cup of sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 6 tablespoons of melted butter
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 1/2 cups of fresh cranberries
    • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
    • pinch of salt
    For the Topping
    1. Heat oven to 425 degrees
    2. Process the first four topping ingredients in a food processor until it resembles coarse sand, (about 5 pulses)
    3. Add pecans and pulse just enough to roughly chop the pecans, place in a small bowl and set aside
    For the Muffins
    1. Prepare muffin tins with either cupcake papers or spray with a non stick baking spray
    2. In a bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt, set aside
    3. In the  Food processor, process pecans and sugar until mixture resembles coarse sand, transfer a large bowl and whisk in eggs, butter and milk, slowly add the flour mixture and blend
    4. Place cranberries, powdered sugar and salt in process server and process just until coarsely chopped, fold into the batter mixture
    5. Spoon into 12 muffin cups (fill to the top of each cup)
    6. Sprinkle the topping very heavy on each muffin, pressing in, if necessary to keep the topping from falling off
    7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes
    8. Remove from oven, let sit in tins for 10 minutes and then remove and cool on cooling rack.
