My youngest daughter, Elaine, made these wonderful muffins for breakfast when my husband and I were visiting her in Virginia. We just loved them, so now we enjoy them at our home. —Janice Pletscher, Basking Ridge, New Jersey

"This is a wonderful recipe-- I make these when I want a very special muffin for teas, brunches, etc. The only change I make is I add 1/2 c. milk as the dough is very thick otherwise. Also, I put a light powdered sugar glaze w/ almond extract on just after baking. Delicious!!!"
