My mother-in-law has been a great inspiration to me in the kitchen. These fruity muffins are often part of our Sunday dinner menu. —Iris Linkletter, Summerside, Prince Edward Island

"Any recipe that has strawberries and cream cheese I'm there. These were delicious. I took them to work and they all wanted the recipe. I did use muffin liners with mine. They did spill out a little. Didn't really make a difference, everyone devoured them. Will certainly make again. Thanks for the recipe."

"The muffins had a very good flavor. However, the filling did spill out for me too, which equals a big mess and very ugly muffins. I would probably put a little less muffin mix in the next time, especially on the bottom. And instead of 3 t of baking powder, it would be 2."

"So sorry to say this, but they were very dry and the filling drained out the side of the muffins and made a mess.
