We have been making these muffins since I was in high school...my mom's friend Pat came across this recipe somewhere when a group of ladies were hosting a Christmas workshop for women at our church. We tried them and instantly fell in muffin-love! They are by no means low-fat, but they are by all means delicious and make a big batch. The recipe makes 24-30 muffins. I doubled it the last time I made them and I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing that - the batter was huge, way too much for my Kitchen-Aid, so I had to tame it in the biggest batter bowl I have!
They still turned out amazing, but stick with making one batch at a time, it will make your life easier!
As you prepare for the holidays, know these would be great to have around on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. Hope you have a chance to make a batch soon! If you do, let me know what you think!
