Grandma's Special Dutch Apple Cheese Muffins
This inventive recipe layers apple slices across a muffin flavored with cheddar cheese and brushed with a cinnamon glaze.
Why This Recipe Works
Tasters loved this muffin recipe’s combination of apples and cheddar cheese, and its crowning touch of cinnamon glaze. Using a food processor to quickly cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients prevents the butter from overheating. For easy apple coring, a common melon baller worked best. Simply use the scoop end to carve out seeds after halving the apple. For the cheese muffins recipe’s glaze, a combination of sugar, water, butter, lemon juice, and cinnamon proved best. The tang of the lemon juice complemented the sweet-tart green apples and sharp cheddar in the recipe.
