Oh My Goodness!!!! These are absolutely wonderful. I can't believe they don't have more reviews. I cut the recipe down to 6 muffins. They were light and tart. But.......even better, if that's possible, the next morning. Thanks so much for sharing. UPDATE Aug 18/08: Added lemon zest to the pretty. I'm very pleased to say that I won Second Place in the 'Robin Hood' category. These muffins truly are amazing. Thanks again Hill Family!
