    Marz's Note:

    This was published in Cook's Country (Feb/March 2008 edition) and was a runner up in a muffin contest. Kudos go to Joyce Hart from Prior Lake, MN, for coming up with this excellent muffin recipe I just test drove this evening. This is truly a wonderful muffin!

      Fantastic! I did not have enough sour cream on hand, so I used some peach yogurt and topped it of with a little milk to get the right consistency. Very good with dark chocolate! I did not do the filling either, but I am sure that would be excellent as well. Thanks for the recipe!

      55!! These are heavenly in my opinion. My husband doesn't like apricot but just told me these are the best muffins I've made so far. I didn't do the filling or glaze but don't feel like I've missed out on anything. These are just fantastic and will be made time and time again at our house! I can't rave about them enough!
