St Patrick's Pistachio muffins in Fiestaware cups

If you are like me you have dozens of Fiestaware cups. The cups are to small for coffee and I seldom drink hot tea. What else can you use them for? Make muffins in them.

I love the way they look and they turned out super moist and yummy. The pistachio pudding made them just the right color green. I added no food color in these muffins but if you want a more vivid green you could add a drop or two of green food coloring.

                                       Just look at the color, it matches the lemon grass fiesta.

I used shamrock and lemon grass Fiestaware and Longaberger napkins. The tablecloth was a GW find for $2.99 and was half price so it was only $1.50

                                      Now you know what to do with all those Fiesta cups.
