"These were so delicious. I will be making these again! I agree with some of the reviewers about doubling the nutmeg. It was a little light otherwise."

"I usually double the nutmeg in the muffins to give them more flavor. They are easy to overbake because the tops don't get as brown as muffins usually do. Contrary to most muffins, they are even better the next day."

"I made these for a catering event. They were good, but I may have overbaked them (since I was multi-tasking!). They seemed a little dry. So, I will try them again and bake them for a little less time."

"This wasn't what I expected. I wanted more of the creamy flavor along with the spices. It was under-flavored."

"I followed the recipe using my own eggnog. The muffins were dense and poor tasting. I would never make this again"

"My husband said these were the best muffins he's had in a long time. I had to use dates instead of raisins because I was out, and I substituted 1/4 c Splenda brown sugar instead of the sugar plus added 1/3 c nonfat dry milk and 1/2 t baking soda to the dry ingredients. They baked in a little less time but they are as tall as the ones in the picture. No one would guess they were reduced sugar."

"Used frozen cranberries for the raisins and walnuts for the pecans - tossed both in 1/4 cup flour (to prevent sinking) before folding them into the batter."

"The kids don't care for raisins and nuts in muffins so I ended up making 2 batches of these muffins, one as written (very tasty) and one without raisins and pecans in mini muffin tins (made 48 at the same temp for 10-12 min) which the kids devoured."

"This recipe is very quick and easy and perfect for a rushed day. I made mini muffins instead of full sized and substituted dried cranberries for the raisins. Very good."

These are yummy! I substituted fresh cranberries for the nuts and they turned out wonderfully, with a pretty touch of color.
That is a great Idea, Pamela!  These do look very good and festive during the holidays. "
