These muffins are GREAT! Too bad the rating scale only goes up to 5! I found Tebo's tip helpful...used paper liners and I'm glad I did. I didn't have any buttermilk so I made a substitute (1 cup milk, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, stir, let sit for 10 minutes. For this particular recipe I just added the other 2 tbsp. milk without adjusting the lemon juice.). Muffins had a nice texture. Also, pecans are a staple in my house so I used them instead of the walnuts. I also brushed on the melted honey...not as messy. Thanks, Erin! M&Mers

Erin, as far as baking is concerned I LOVE your recipes! My daughter and I baked this last night as a treat for the ambulance volunteers in our town. We first baked a test batch, and not enough muffins survived (some of us tested two muffins, some three, they were THAT good!). We ended up making 4 batches, using a combo of walnuts and pecans. Baklava is one of my favorite desserts, and this tastes just like it, and it's not as high in fat and calories! Keep 'em coming, Erin!

Where did this recipe come from? Really good. The only problem I had was removing them from the muffin tin. Next time I'll use paper cups. These will make a terrific dessert!! Thank you Erin.

I doubled the recipe in order to bring some in to work. They lasted about 5 minutes and everyone is raving over them. And, if I do say so myself, they are delicious. I warmed mine up but most just inhaled them cold. And still thought they were great. Thanks Erin. A wonderful recipe.

These are some great muffins, Erin! I used the paper liners (always do anyway), and they do tend to stick to the liners, but I found they were easier to peel away the 2nd day, especially if warmed briefly in the microwave. DH took some to work and brought home a note from a coworker requesting more. :o)

Super muffins!!! I doubled the filling and put a little more inside and on top because we love nuts.

Made a double batch of these for my husband's shop. They were a hit. Definitely need muffin papers though. Thanks for posting.
