    Irmgard's Note:

    These tender, delicious muffins are from Food and Drink magazine. It is a very versatile recipe as dried apricots may be substituted for the raisins and chopped almonds or pecans for the pistachios. I didn't make the glaze as I plan to freeze the muffins. Also, these muffins are best served when completely cooled as the paper muffin tin liners really stick to the muffins when they are still warm.
