This recipe is an adaptation from a recipe posted by Teresa Jacobson. I have tweaked and adjusted to create a more robust flavor with a nod to apple pie.

How To Make autumn harvest muffins

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 450° F. Spray muffin or mini muffin pans liberally with a butter flavored spray.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, combine Bisquick, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Add yogurt and stir just until blended. Add ginger ale and stir until well mixed.
  • 3
    Fold in mixture of apple pieces and slivered almonds (optional).
  • 4
    Scoop heaping spoonfuls into prepared muffin pans (regular or mini). As this is a stiff dough, you can fill a bit fuller than you would normally fill a muffin pan,
  • 5
    Bake at 450° for 10 minutes.
  • 6
    While muffins are baking, prepare the icing.
  • 7
    Cut 2 tablespoons of room temperature butter into 1 cup of powdered (confectioner's) sugar.
  • 8
    Add almond and apple flavoring. Blend well. Add half and half and stir until smooth. (You may need to adjust powdered sugar and/or half and half) Microwave for 10 seconds to create perfect drizzle.
  • 9
    Remove muffins from oven. Place on serving tray while still very warm and drizzle with the apple almond icing.
  • 10
    Serve while still warm. These are great paired with homemade apple butter. YUMMY!
