I am just eating one of these little muffins right now. They're great - the lemon really complements it! I did find that muffin mixture was quite dry when I mixed it together - but they worked out fine. I also used light sour cream. Thanks for a great recipe!

This came together really quickly. I overcooked the first batch, but maybe my mini muffin pan (from Pampered Chef) has smaller cups, because I also ended up with 3 dozen muffins. I only had to bake for maybe 10 minutes. I liked the ginger flavoring with this and reminded me of when I was a kid. We always used to eat gingerbread with cool whip and these little muffins made me want cool whip! Thanks Kater!
