3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons sugar

baking spray with flour
Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin with baking spray. Preheat oven to 425°F.
1 cup pecan halves
Bake pecans in oven at 425°F until toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove and let cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor.
1 cup sugar
Using a food processor, process pecans and sugar until nuts have almost entirely broken down and mixture resembles coarse sand, about 10 2-second pulses. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
2 large eggs
½ cup whole milk
6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
Add eggs, milk, and melted butter to pecan-sugar mixture. Whisk until combined.
1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
In a separate small bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour flour mixture into wet ingredients and whisk until just combined.
Set batter aside until thickened, about 30 minutes.
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
In now empty food processor, pulse cranberries, confectioners' sugar, and salt until cranberries are coarsely chopped, about 6 pulses.
Using a spatula, fold cranberry mixture into batter until just combined.
Using a ¼ cup measure, scoop batter into prepared muffin tin.
reserved streusel topping
Evenly sprinkle streusel topping over muffins, pressing gently into batter to ensure that it sticks.
Bake at 425°F until muffins are golden brown and firm, about 17 to 18 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool muffins in the pan on top of a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove muffins from tin and cool on wire rack for an additional 10 minutes before serving.
