MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

I wanted to try these because they are almost identical to another Zaar recipe that I use all the time, except these have more sugar. I wanted to see if the additional sugar made a lot of difference. I was surprised that it did. The tops of these muffins were crisper and the muffins were chewier and not as tender. They were good muffins but I do prefer the less sugar version. I used almond extract and added in 1 cup of dried cherries and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips. An excellent and tasty combination! Another good combo is chocolate chips, dried cranberries and some orange zest. The possibilities are indeed endless. :) Thanks Kitten!
