We absolutely love these muffins! You don't need butter, just as they are slightly warm they are incredible. Fluffy and full of flavour!

I am glad that i made these muffins before reading the reviews. My family enjoyed these and asked me to make them again. I used fresh rosemary from my herb garden and finely shredded cheddar cheese. I wonder if some of the others who made this, used all purpose flour instead of the called for self rising flour. I used organic all purpose flour, but added the necessary salt and baking powder to help them "rise" and be more dense. I will be making these again! Loved them! (Field Editor)

I have made this recipe over and over. We love these muffins. I even alternate rosemary with other spices for different foods.

Followed recipe to a 'T.' They turned out like chewy bricks with little or no taste, using fresh rosemary and expensive sharp cheddar. My sons asked if I forgot some of the ingredients. I actually went back and checked myself. I wasn't the problem. The recipe was. I'll now know to check the reviews on line instead of just using the magazine.

These were good served with our Thanksgiving dinner. I didn't have enough rosemary so I used 1/2 T with 1/2 T thyme. They took about 15 mins to bake.

These muffins are definitely more along the lines of a biscuit. We love the flavor of rosemary so we both liked them. They took a lot longer than 8-10 minutes to bake, but were easy to make.

These were delicious, and no alterations necessary.

I thought these were good. Hubby and co-workers loved them. Easy to make. You have to like the taste of rosemary though, use fresh!

I made these a couple of nights ago to accompany some ravioli that I made. My entire family was not impressed. The 2 year old spit it out, the 4 year old said "Mommy, I don't care for these at all!" I went to take a bite and nearly had the same reaction as our 2 year old. I thought they were quite bland, but not only that--these were the most dense muffins I have ever tasted, and rather chewy as well. Not to mention, these muffins didn't even rise. Although I sprayed the muffin tins generously, I also had a hard time getting them out without sticking. I just don't have anything good to say about these muffins at all--sorry! I ended up throwing away the entire batch.
