Tip #1

These muffins are best served warm. They can be baked ahead of time, however, do not glaze them. When ready to serve, heat oven to 350°F. Wrap muffins in aluminum foil; heat about 15 minutes. Glaze warm muffins and serve.

I make these every year for Easter Breakfast. My granddaughter love's these. I sometimes make them throughout the year and put them in the freezer for when I need a muffin fix or company comes by and I just defrost and warm in microwave. Of course they're not glazed until they're defrosted. They're even good without the glaze.
