I made these muffins on Christmas Eve morning last year, and them aromas filling the house had everyone flocking to the kitchen in their pajamas! I topped them with a luscious cream cheese frosting and brought them to my cousin's house that evening for Christmas drinks - suffice to say they vanished pretty quickly!
