Christmas isn't over...until the fat lady sings!
One remembrance of Christmas that I have is receiving an orange and an apple in my stocking each year.
It's a tradition that my mom started and that I've maintained. Some traditions bring back the best memories and are just worth continuing don't you think?
With that, I'm sharing a recipe with you today to use those apples in a wonderful day after Christmas breakfast. YUM YUM! Full of fresh tart, sweet, apples and cinnamon....to DIE for!
This recipe makes 6 but you can certainly double it for a dozen. As for the apple, I found a new apple at the store the other day. It comes from New York and it's call Macoun. I must say it is a tasty apple...a little tart, a little sweet, but nice and crisp, I just loved it! You can use your favorite apple as long as it is a good firm apple. Ones like red delicious tend to be a little mushy for baking, so choose a firm one like, Jazz, Pink Lady, Pippin, or Granny Smith.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Try these muffins today to extend that holiday feeling a little bit longer.
