“These easy-to-prepare muffins are delicious and smell heavenly! From the R.S.V.P. section of an August 1988 Bon Appetit. The recipe was requested from the Crab Apple Inn in Plymouth, New Hampshire. I usually make these in paper-lined muffin tins, cool completely and put into a heavy-duty zip top freezer bag, then rewarm in the microwave.”
