    A bit of a job, but well worth it. The first time I made these muffins, the response was so overwhelming, I now double the recipe every time I make them.
    When doubling, the glaze tends to be thick, like a frosting, so just add a little more lemon juice, (a teaspoon or so.) If you prefer a less lemony flavor, just add a little milk or water.
    They freeze exceptional well, so don’t be shy about making a large batch.

    This one is a real winner. Thanks recipe girl.
