Prickly Pear Perfection
Small confession... I LOVE cacti, succulents and all things dessert-made. That includes prickly pear and all its glory! Have you tried anything prickly pear flavored? Starbucks had a summertime frappuccino in honor of this deliciousness, so chances are that a good number of you #basic kids tried it.
I went on Amazon to find the best prickly pear syrup and found the best named company possible, Grow A Pear.
So, bought myself some syrup and started baking!
Mini Muffins with a prickly pear glaze. DELISH.
I followed Sally's Baking Addiction recipe for mini powdered doughnuts (minus the cinnamon) but put them in mini muffin tins instead because I lacked the ability to make doughnut holes (lol).
Then for the glaze, I used the classic recipe:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tbsp prickly pear
Splash of water
Add them all together and stir to get the right consistency for you (more powdered sugar for thicker glaze, more prickly pear syrup for a more thin glaze with more flavor, etc.)
