Colonial Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is a recipe I used when I had a winter lodge. It was popular on cold winter mornings, especially when they were still warm and the butter melted into them. Any prepared mincemeat will do but I prefer the non alcoholic for this recipe.

Although I do, on occasion, use a rum-&-brandy mincemeat, I didn't use it this time instaed using a jar of the plain None Such! DEFINITELY LOVED THESE MUFFINS, especially with this combo of spices, & plan on making them again in another week using some homemade mince & perhaps including the subar-&-rum topping as well! A wonderful keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
