Now that Thanksgiving is over and we can all openly get ready for Christmas without inviting scorn, these maple and gingerbread muffins are the perfect way to celebrate the holidays. From How Sweet It Is, this recipe for buttery gingerbread maple muffins are a tasty twist on the festive flavor.
If traditional gingerbread cookies aren't your thing, the muffin format will likely be more to your taste. The "toned down" gingerbread muffins have just a hint of maple and are topped with crunchy raw sugar.
These treats are best paired with a glass of eggnog, hot chocolate or any kind of special seasonal latte. Perfect for Mondays, the muffins will make you a very popular guest wherever you bring them.
