Apple Butter Muffins

Apple butter is always in great supply in our house. It’s a fabulous spread on an English muffin in the morning for breakfast, but it can also be a great addition to your muffins. This recipe produces muffins that are more dense in consistency but produce a moist texture and pie-like spice flavor profile. Enjoy
