I loved these muffins. I enjoyed the flavor and think they would be a great afternoon treat or a light dessert. The recipe made 12 perfectly sized muffins. I ate one and gave the other 11 to a neighbor who needs some help with meals for a bit. I love the hint of almond extract in the muffin itself and the texture is nice and soft. Baked perfectly in 22 minutes in my oven. Used a large scoop for the batter and a tiny scoop for the filling. Worked perfectly having two scoops handy. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for My 3 Chefs event June 2008.
