"These were really yummy. I doubled the lemon extract, and it was still a bit mild to my taste so I will add more next time."

"Very tasty, though I only get 2 dozen mini muffins or 9 regular muffins with this recipe."

"I have made this recipe for years and years. It is sooo yummy. I sometimes substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream and it turns out just fine. I also like to add a little more lemon extract."
