    A tribute to the universally favored cheese danish--hopefully with less fat and calories:) These are really fabulous if drizzled with a simple lemon glaze (some powdered sugar and lemon juice).

      I was a little disappointed with this recipe, though they were still pretty good. The muffins themselves didn't have as much filling as I would have hoped, and I was only able to get about half a tablespoon, if that, of filling into each muffin, so it didn't contribute too much to the taste of the muffin as a whole. I also found that if you put the filling too close to the top (oops), some of it peeks out the top of the muffin as they cook. I dusted with powdered sugar when these came out of the oven. I'm giving this recipe four starts because, though not as good as I'd hoped, I don't dislike these and they did bake up 12 big, full, beautifully-shaped muffins. Next time I might try doubling the filling mixture.
