Reviews for Walnut Gingerbread Muffins
"Excellent muffin recipe. Makes nice sized muffins and smells great in the oven!!"
"Have not had pleasuire of making these yet, but am giving them **5 stars**, since they look sooooo good. Would leave out dates, perhaps use raisins in their place. Thank you for sharing, Mrs. Bush!"
