I like these bread sticks because I can whip them up in a hurry if company drops in unexpectedly (which happens often since my husband is a minister!). Most folks are amazed that a recipe this easy can taste so good!
As a kid, I loved doughnuts filled with custard or jelly. So I decided to experiment with fillings in muffins. The result was this terrific recipe. These fancy muffins are almost like a pastry with a creamy center and a nutty streusel topping.

Meet the Cook: Because these muffins are a bit heavier than many of the snack type, they are perfect for when you wake up hungry. They're quick and easy, too. I adapted them from a poppy seed quick bread I was served once at a neighbor's.
My husband and I are the parents of three sons - 16, 15, and 12.

Often, I make a double batch of these moist, fluffy biscuits to meet the demand. My dad loves their pumpkiny goodness and requests them for holidays, Father's Day and his birthday. —Liza Taylor, Seattle, Washington
"We were camping, and I didn’t have enough milk for my usual blueberry muffin recipe,” recalls Dorothy Ross of Ear Falls, Ontario. “I did have some sour cream and a bit of rhubarb, so I used those. The muffins were awesome, and now I make them often!”
What a pleasure it is to set out a basket of these rhubarb muffins...although the basket doesn't stay full for very long! I have six children and two grandsons, so I do a lot of baking. The snacks are based on a coffee cake recipe.
"Take one bite and you'll see why these rich, tender muffins are the best I've ever tastes," writes Stephanie Moon, of Boise, Idaho. "Mint chocolate chips make them a big hit with my family and friends."
These nicely spiced muffins are a great accompaniment to any meal - or try them for breakfast, dessert or a snack. The pumpkin flavor is complemented by a sweet brown sugar topping.

Shredded zucchini adds moistness to these tender muffins dotted with raisins and chopped walnuts. If you have a surplus of zucchini in summer as most of us do, this is a good way to use some of it. —Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana
