Apple Streusel Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sharon123

These muffins are great grabbed straight out of the oven, warm with vanilla ice cream or with a steaming cup of coffee for breakfast. The addition of sour cream makes these muffins super moist, with a awesome rich flavor. This recipe makes two dozen muffins, which is a great because you can share with friends! Use your favorite apples, this recipe used Northern Spy. Honey Crisp are one of my favorite apples, along with Gala and Fuji. A tart apple would do well here too.

These are delicious. At Sharon's suggestion, I used half whole wheat, half ap flour. I also used half tart,half sweet apples. I have to say though that I ended up with HUGE muffins--I don't know whether I was generous in my measuring or whether this just does result in a lot of dough--but I'm not complaining--they're delicious. Thanks, Sharon!
