How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 12-cup muffin pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

    Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine whipping cream, egg yolks and 1 teaspoon maple extract in another bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed. Pour whipping cream mixture into flour mixture; stir until moist dough forms. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; gently knead 10 times or until smooth.
