Lemon Crumb Muffins

Recipe by Cook4_6

In my home town we have a beautiful Christmas Tree Farm that has a small cafe that overlooks the farm and a lake. It has breath-taking views and a breath-taking muffins and pies. This recipe was printed in a local paper in 1991 and continues to be a favorite! It is worth the effort!

THE BEST EVER! I thought I had lost my printed copy of the recipe and I spent hours looking for it. I even went so far as to go to the Apple Store so they could help me search my history. Yes they were that good!
