New York State Apple Muffins Recipe


I used to work at an apple orchard before retiring. We would give out this recipe to our customers, and so many of them came back telling us how good the muffins were. My family agrees! I think the cream cheese makes these stand out from other apple muffins. —Lillian Davis, Berkshire, New York

Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Combine the eggs, butter, cream cheese and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened (batter will be stiff). Fold in the apples, raisins and walnuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Combine the topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter.
Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
