New York State Apple Muffins Recipe

I used to work at an apple orchard before retiring. We would give out this recipe to our customers, and so many of them came back telling us how good the muffins were. My family agrees! I think the cream cheese makes these stand out from other apple muffins. —Lillian Davis, Berkshire, New York
