      I am rounding this up from 3.5 stars. We really liked the blood orange syrup and all the pecans. The directions were a little more complicated than your average muffin recipe though. I added a pinch of salt to the muffins. I also halved the amount of syrup (then used only 75% of the sugar), and it was still nicely sweet. I served these with fat free whipped cream. DH thought the texture of these was similar to a scone. Very creative, good luck in the contest!
