I was skeptical about these because they have no fat in them whatsoever---well, except the melted butter/cinnamon sugar coating. But they turned out scrumptious. Of course, like most low-fat recipes, they make up for it in sugar, which is no better nutritionally. Oh well, the apple cider has some fiber in it, right? Don't tell me differently. I messed up the cinnamon sugar step. Instead of dipping them in melted butter, THEN rolling them in cinnamon sugar, I mixed it all together and coated the muffins. So what should have looked an elegant dusting of snow on each muffin ended up looking like this:
However, I'm sold on the "mistake." The topping became a nice glaze when it cooled. Yum.
Last thing before the recipe: Don't forget the girls' fundraiser. We're on our way to $1000, and Carol of the Bells is sounding very good!

When you get to the last step, consider following in my absent-minded footsteps by combining butter, cinnamon and sugar and coating the muffins with the glaze.
