  9. Allow muffins to cool in pan for about 2 minutes; remove to a wire rack and cool completely before icing.
  10. Meanwhile, combine icing ingredients in a medium bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes.

  13. Note:.
  14. If the mouth-puckering lemon icing isn't enough flavor for you, try adding 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to the flour mixture.

Just finished making these (as mini muffins...of course shortened bake time). Added some mini chocolate chips...they are excellent!
