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.

To be honest, there's a ton of stuff - not all of it rosy - about me on the internet so there's nothing new to say here. I like food and sharing my recipes.
