These are wonderful--I usually make tons of them and then freeze them for later use! They are quite healthy, thanks to the ricotta cheese :-)

These were heavenly warm from the oven. I replaced 1 cup of the all purpose flour with whole wheat pastry flour and used 2 whole eggs rather than waste the yolk. I also used regular sized muffin pans, which yielded 16 muffins. Excellent recipe. Thank you.

Great little bites! I prepared these for a breakfast party featuring all tiny little finger foods, and they were a hit. I used an all fruit blueberry spread, as that is all I could find at the grocery. I think that these would also be good with a strawberry or cherry preserve filling. Yummy and simple.
