"My son was waiting in line 20 mins at school to get mini muffins in a bag. I told him that I would make some at home for him to bring into school, so he didn't waste his before-school social time standing in line. These were simple and tasty and I'll definitely be making them again. I only got 2 dozen in my PC mini muffin pan."

"These muffins are soft and springy. Just don't use butter flavored Crisco as the shortening. Left a weird taste. But the muffin acted like store bought."
