These were sooo yummy! I bought the almond paste that was already in the shape of a tube and just rolled it out a little more so it was smaller, then sliced it into disks. I was only able to make 12 large muffins - perhaps use teaspoons of batter instead of tablespoons if you want to get 16 muffins out of this recipe. I also topped them with a crumb topping before baking - 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp flour, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp melted butter, mixed together. Thank you for posting this recipe - will make again!
