This has to be short and sweet today kids. The fan on my computer has stopped working and everything shuts down randomly without warning. AHHHHH! I’m answering emails and comments on my phone and hoping to get my HP up and running. Wish me luck.
Today I’m going to help you turn this…
into this, for your New Year’s Eve party!
Bacon-Parmesan Mini Muffins
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 24 mini muffins
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup half-n-half
- 1 egg
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 6 bacon slices cooked crispy and chopped
- 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add in flour in two additions, beating until just combined after each add in. Roll dough into 1″ balls and place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Place each dough ball into the cup of a mini muffin pan. Using your thumb, press into the center of the dough to create little cups.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and place mini muffins on a wire rack to cool fro 5 minutes. Serve warm.
