Apple Pie Muffins

Well, this is the last picture from the photo session with Candice. I guess I’m going to have to go back to taking my own pictures again!

This was originally a regular recipe for apple muffins, but I decided to switch it up a bit by making using sauteed apples inside, and topping the muffin with streusal. It’s just a couple of changes, but I think they make a huge difference. You can make the filling and the topping ahead of time, but if you’d rather not, you can use canned apple pie filling in the muffins.

These muffins are a great thing to have around on Christmas morning. I love to make a huge breakfast for Christmas, but my kids aren’t really interested in something big; they want to get down to business. If they have these in their bellies, at least I know that they’ve eaten something besides chocolate and candy!
