I was paging through some old issues today and found these tender muffins. They are delicious and have earned a place in my recipe file.

I thought these muffins were a good sub for a dinner roll, but I will leave off the nutmeg topping next time.

I am really surprised that no one else has made these muffins yet. I have tried so many sour cream muffin recipes and this one is definitely a family favorite. I plan to make some more this weekend and i will see if I can post a picture of the muffins as well. Make them, you won't regret it.

These muffins are so fluffy and delicious! The recipe made 12 muffins when I did it and they puffed up to the point that they were beautifully rounded on the top. I added some cinnamon sugar to the topping since it wasn't enough topping for the batch. Would deffinitly make these again! A new favorite!
