Raspberry Almond Mini-Muffins

by Melissa on March 12, 2008

I was looking for some recipes to use my new Pampered Chef mini-muffin tin and Joelen sent me this one. These cute little muffins are very good and the perfect size for snacking. I brought these along with the cinnamon-apple mini-muffins to work for a treat over the weekend. These weren’t the prettiest muffins when they came out of the oven, so I added the almond glaze.

Man those look great! I love raspberry, I think it is an underused fruit and would be so good in many recipes. I can’t wait to try these.
