Spicy Apple Muffins

From: Rochelle

This is another recipe from my wonderful cousin Natalie. Natalie and I were made in the same mold, I swear. We don't look alike but inside we are exact copies of one another! Anyway, Austin and I wanted something new for breakfast so we decided to make this yummy muffins! The spices in these muffins remind me of the fireplace and warmth and the sweet glaze kisses the top of each muffin. SO good!

We made our muffins in a really cool muffin tin given to us at our wedding from one of my previous roommates, Kristen. I believe she got it from Ikea. They also sell the liners for their pan. It makes these skinny, tall muffins which are super cute!
