Reviews for Cinnamon Mini Muffins and Cinnamon Butter
"Make with vintage cinnamon and spices"
"I have been making these muffins since Christmas of '97 when they first appeared in the Country Living magazine. These are my family's favorite muffins. Not too sweet and easy to make a batch...or two for a quick Saturday morning breakfast."
"Great Sunday Morning before Church treat!"
