The Apple: Apple-Cinnamon Muffins


I've thought about these muffins since I had them a year and a half ago. A friend at work shared the recipe, after she brought me a batch as a Christmas gift. Oh...my....you are going to want to be my best friend if you try these out. You're too late though b/c I already asked said friend to be my best friend after she shared the recipe, and I'm pretty devoted. ;o) Not really, she moved, we haven't kept in touch regularly b/c she married, and happy...and I'm going to pretend she doesn't have internet access where she lives and that's why she doesn't write, so...good news, I can be your best friend...and while you are pondering that threat/promise...here is a recipe to one of the best muffins on the face of planet earth....even the batter is good...I ate at least a muffins worth I pretended was 'left' in the bowl and I could scrape out.

Just tried this recipe and loved it! I put walnuts instead of pecans cause that was all I had in the house, and added a bit of spice to the mixture, cinnamon and nutmeg. I turned out great. Love your site!
