How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Grease bottoms only of muffin pan cups; set aside.

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.
