My wife made these and we washed em down with a nice cup of coffee. Great morning muffins that we will be having again. They were moist and sweet enough for us!

I made these twice. The first time I followed the recipe and they were great. The second time I switched the almond extract for vanilla and added chocolate chips to the batter (the first part ... that you pour the cream cheese mixture over) -- and they were awesome!

I brought these to work too. Rave reviews! I too added lemon zest to the cream cheese. On of the drs. at work said they tasted like Christmas cookies! Everyone really loved them. Thanks for this great recipe!
