YOU WILL NEED: All-Purpose Flour Eggnog Finely Chopped Pecans Powdered Sugar Large Eggs Brown Sugar Unsalted Butter Rum Extract Baking Powder Nutmeg Salt

In a small bowl, mix together flour, pecans, brown sugar, and nutmeg.     Use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Set aside.

In one bowl, combine dry ingredients.  In another, whisk the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry.

Stir just until moistened - the eggnog muffin batter should be lumpy.

Divide batter between prepared muffin cups, sprinkle streusel topping over muffin batter.

Bake until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, allow to cool.

Follow the linked recipe to whisk together the eggnog glaze - you want it thick.

Remove muffins from muffin cups; drizzle with glaze, and serve warm.   Enjoy!
