      These were really good! I was surprised how moist they were. My family is very picky - they don't like apricots, nuts or chunks, so I pureed the cots and left out the nuts and the sugar on top. I froze them and took them to a family reunion so everyone could taste one - all were pleasantly surprised! Thanks a bunch for a nice change in a muffin.

      Very delicious! Do not grease the sides of the muffin tin - just the bottoms. That way you can get lovely browned crusts. I think I'll cut down on the nutmeg next time or play around with another's really strong!

      I had two apricots that needed using up so this recipe was perfect! I made a loaf instead of muffins. The nutmeg went really well. Thanks!
