You guys should know I love baked goods with apples. When I saw the recipe for these apple crisp muffins in one of my favorite magazines, I immediately added them to my to-bake list.
Unfortunately, they took me awhile to bake. I had this magazine for over a year now. LOL. I`m sure you understand how it is! There are so many recipes out there what appeals to you that they distracts you from the ones before.
Also, I never seemed to have apples and cream cheese at the same time in my fridge.
I never made apple muffins before and the topping for these muffins is made with cream cheese! I was definitely excited to make these.
After the muffins came out of the oven, the smell was wonderful! When I took my first bite though, I was confused as to why these were called apple CRISP muffins.
Sure, there was the crisp topping, but because you drop cream cheese filling on top, it`s more like a soft topping. The cream cheese filling sinks into the muffins, making it look pretty cool.
However, next time around I will leave out the cream cheese filling. The apple muffin part was good, but I believe the filling was kind of unnecessary. Don`t get my wrong, they were good--but, they could have been better.
Oh, I also suggest drizzling some caramel ice cream topping on top. Makes for a wonderful muffin! :)
